No Travel this Memorial Day

Sitting on the back deck, this is the first time in 15 years I'll be home the week of Memorial Day. Fort Walton and Destin are special places for our family, vacationing there since high school for me and since elementary school for Libby. The combination of restructuring and gas prices -- no beach this summer.

I'll miss it, in particular the Donut Hole, which I've mentioned before. I always saw those mugs when we'd visit, and resisted the temptation to buy one until last summer. Who knew it would be our last visit for a while.

So, with my morning coffee in the Donut Hole mug, I'm thinking about the sound of the beach and never taking anything for granted anymore.
