“You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need”
~The Rolling Stones~
We don’t always get what we want on vacation; however, vacation is something we all need.
Wouldn’t you agree?
(Crazy workaholics need not answer)
For example, one may not get sweaty hot weather…
But blue skies and a view is what is needed most.
One may not see the perfect, cloudless sunset…
But who can argue with almost perfect AND a campfire on the beach?
One may not always get to go down the stairs…
But the views at both the top and bottom are what everyone needs.
One may not get to take the cats along on vacation because they hate the car…
But hanging out with a big, lovable dog for a few days may be what one needs.
One may not get excited over nature and bridges…
No, it’s what you need, honey. Honestly.
One may not get to ride the planned bike trail due to rain…
But the alternative is still engaging.
And there’s another bridge.
One may not get a piece of pie or chocolate cake on vacation…
But having a plate of fish tacos and beer, and a plate of mussels and beer is required.
Dessert not needed.
I assure you.
One may walk on a woodsy trail for a mile and not get the view they expected…
But the solitude and history of this place is what one needs.
(More on this subject at a later date.)
One may not get to ride on a roller coaster or shop at the mega outlet mall…
But why would anyone do that on vacation when you can do THIS?
It’s what you and I need.
