2 day getaway

We normally take all of our vacation time in the summer but the girls and I had an opportunity to spend a few days at the beach this week.  We arrived after 11 pm on Thursday night because traffic was such a nightmare.  There was nothing to do but sleep once we arrived.  The next morning was breakfast and a day out at an Arts & Crafts fair and outlet shopping.  My mom prepared dinner for us all and we watched movies until night.  The weather was pleasant but cool.  Nothing was better than the view from our room. 

On our finally day we enjoyed breakfast at our favorite beach spot, took a stroll on the boardwalk and headed back home.  We did make a stop at the birthplace of Harriet Tubman.  There was a Harriet Tubman museum and educational center where we viewed a documentary of her life and saw much on display regarding her contribution to American history.  I know and have learned a lot about Harriet Tubman but there was still much I didn't know.   It was a great visit for us all.  


We all wished we could stay longer but I couldn't leave my husband much longer with the younger kids.  But I'm grateful we had a change of scenery even if for only 2 days.
