Cloud Nine left the depot bright and early this morning, south bound.
The Man gave me the wheel for a few hours and, as odd as it may sound to some, I love driving this big rig, except when it's terribly windy, which it is today, but I knew The Man needed a break and so I collected my bearings, said, "Help me, Lord," slowed the speed way down, and we reached our first night's destination without a hitch. And now I'm out of breath from typing that very long sentence. (hehe)
We will travel a few hours on Sunday, then end up in a place we've been before and thoroughly enjoyed during our last visit, although it was winter the last time we were on South Padre Island. It's definitely not winter now!
We don't plan to stay long ... just long enough to unwind and forget about any and all unpleasant things. Sometimes you have to do that, whether you take a roadtrip, or just escape to the backyard, you have step away from the tight places and just breathe.
Lord willing, I'll be breathing to the rhythm of the waves for the next few days.
I'd love to know what you'll be up to this week. Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, I hope your summer is sailing along smoothly.
