Beach or Bust

We LOVE to vacation with our extended families and have been renting a succession of condos/townhouses on the beach in Florida for many years. Some years it all pulls together and we ALL can make it and it is a blast, kids running everywhere, poker games way into the night. Well, the place we had been booking was wiped out two years ago in a hurricane, so last year we didn't go anywhere...except that unplanned 3-week evacuation/vacation. Kinda good we had money set aside for that little adventure, huh?!

Fast forward to this year! We finally found a place that had 5 condos available right on the beach with a pool, on one of our favorite beaches. Everyone had their vacations set aside, my sister that lives in Jupiter is driving in. We have been looking forward to this for so long! Can't wait!

Then we get a call from the Realty office..."So sorry, but the pool (which had been toppled during the aforementioned hurricane) will not be ready." BUMMER! While it's not the end of the world for ME, my sil won't go now. She said they will only go somewhere with a pool. Guess we'll miss them!

It is nice to have a pool for those times when there's thick seaweed or jellyfish swarms, but just give me white sand, gulf breezes and a good book and I'm happy! Destin, here we come!
