And the living is easy”
And a question for you is this: “When was the last time you took the family on a little vacation trip by car?”
I know, you get tired of that “Are we there yet?”
But what if there was no “there?” You have no specific destination. In short, you just go, maybe from home aim for the deep East Texas. The towns dwindle in size, and trees surround you everywhere. It is getting on toward lunch and you stop at a little place in a small town, and you really enjoy the sandwich. Then you spot a motel and since it is getting later, you stop.
Then you notice a sign offering a swamp tour at twilight. You inquire, and the guy says he’ll take the family for 5 bucks. So you go. The tour in interesting, and the guide is informative. Did you know the difference between alligator and crocodile? Now you do.
The sun has set when you return to the motel, and you find a fish fry underway, and you’re invited as a guest of the motel. And you mingle with folks and have some interesting conversations. You retire for a good night’s sleep.
Next day you visit Nagadoches, the oldest city in Texas, and you do some antique browsing and end up finding and buying a coffee grinder just like your mother had on her kitchen wall.
So you spend several days as a family, just exploring East Texas. You even visit Caddo Lake, the only natural lake in the State of Texas.
So you return home, well rested, and never once heard anyone ask, “Are we there yet?”
Why not give it a try, and report results.
