The travel bug has definitely bitten us big time this year! We went on the Texas road trip to take advantage of the rental car while the truck was in the shop, and to find a few more birds for Tom's Little Big Year. Thinking this was to be the last trip, we were there almost two weeks.
While we were in South Padre Island, I received a phone call from my brother to chat and get caught up on all the activities his active family participates in. While talking he invited us to join them on their holiday vacation. They will be playing in Nassau, Bahamas for a week, starting tomorrow. Somehow they had a scheduling snafu when booking their accommodations. It ultimately required them to book a bigger unit which meant more beds........yep, you guessed it!
I mulled it over for several hours because Tom was very focused on birding. I tossed around the pros and cons and came to the conclusion that it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up! Of course, Tom saw it as an opportunity to find a few more birds for the year. And I am desperate for a salty, turquoise water fix! Besides the traveling hats need to keep traveling.
Ever since we met, we've had a motto of "live in the moment, because who promised you tomorrow?" So, we're going to go and play on Paradise Island with the niece and nephews and spend some fun time with my brother and his wife! By the time you read this, we'll be in the air, and on our way. I'll keep you updated on the fun and adventures!
