Last week was the first relaxing vacation I've had in years. I think since I spent the week at Edisto Beach before my cousin Brian's wedding. Sure, Emily and I have been some great places for a week's vacation since then (Malta, London), and had several long weekend vacations (Stanardsville, Cleveland). But those vacations have always been full of sightseeing and so much to do. No doubt they were fun vacations that I wouldn't trade for anything, but I didn't realize what I was missing. This past week I had no plans and no timetable at all, save for watching the Tech/Clemson game and having dinner with Emily's grandparents. It was nice to just sit back and a take a deep breath and not have to go anywhere or do anything with any real urgency. We spent some time on the beach a couple days, went to the sea turtle center, toured a civil war era fort, and generally just relaxed and did things at a very leisurely pace. Definitely something I need to keep in mind next time I'm thinking about a vacation.
