Take a Day Trip

Day 29 of our 30 day challenge.

Today or tomorrow, plan (or don’t) a day trip. Gather your favorite peeps, get in the car and go somewhere fun, spend a few hours doing fun things and then come back home before bed time. If you are a spur-of-the-moment kind of person, or not, shake things up and do something different.

However, I should say to pick a place within 3 hours drive and google the place to see if there’s at least one interesting thing to see or do or place to eat. I did a spur-of-the-moment day trip and it was not at all what I read it was. The restaurant was probably the most horrible place we ever ate, the worst food, the worst service and had it not been for the fact that we enjoy each other’s company sooo much, that trip would have been an epic fail. Plus, we were in the middle of nowhere land and I don’t mean now-here, I mean no-where. We weren’t in the sticks. We were in the toothpicks. There were fields and grown up grass and trees and that was it. I think this was the one restaurant in the entire one-horse town.

With that being said, just be sure to do at least 10 minutes of research once you pick the place you are headed and find something there you and your peeps will enjoy. And take off!

Share with us where you went, how far it was and what kind of time y’all had!

Hope y’all are having a groovilicious weekend, so far!

Mexican Hat Dance

Mexican Hats, July 2010 roadtrip

So this week’s prompt from Photo Friday is RED.  Hope you enjoy these Mexican Hats!

I know I’ve posted this photo before but it’s the first thing I thought of, plus I was daydreaming of a road trip from which this was taken.  Oh, I long to be on the road, traveling as far as our vehicle will take us.  Some prefer to fly but I prefer to see everything up close and personal every stretch of the way to wherever I’m going.  You never know what little flea market, (fruit stand, hole in the wall restaurant with the best food eva, little out of the way store full of little treasures…) you might find on your adventure.  And the scenery is always lovely.  Well, depending on what route you take or where you’re off to.  Usually, there’s always eye candy to be found on every road trip.

For those of you who celebrate Independence Day, have a Happy 4th of July!!
