We are officially on vacation at the beach! Finally.
We drove down yesterday and had a smooth trip down with little to no traffic. It took us a little over 6 hours to get here, and that was with two stops. The weather was nice when we got here, which helped with setting up mid-afternoon. Sometimes it can be very hot!
The dogs didn’t take long to get settled in. I like traveling with our camper because the dogs can come with us. It’s minimal stress for them, too, since the camper is a familiar place.
As usual, my dad, his girlfriend, and my little sister have a campsite next to ours. Once we were done unpacking, my little sister and I swapped birthday gifts at their campsite. It has become a tradition for us to wait to give each other birthday gifts until the beach (my birthday is July 12 and hers is August 3). After that we all had dinner (sloppy joe’s and corn!) at my aunt and uncle’s camper. It’s always fun to have a big group to hang out with!
I’m looking forward to lazy days spent reading on the beach, endless games of Cards Against Humanity and Dutch Blitz, sitting around the campsite socializing, and overall some relaxation. I’m also really looking forward to doing some running with my little sister as we both train for the Hokie Half Marathon!!
Do you take an annual vacation? Do you go to the same spot, or mix it up?
Have you been on vacation this year?
