I romanticize vacation spots in their off-seasons (this might be why). Relaxation for me often comes in solitude, so going to places like Martha’s Vineyard in the summertime would be a mixed blessing. Beautiful but spoiled. Going when no one else is there feels like you’re witnessing something you’re not supposed to. It’s still beautiful, but you don’t feel like you’re sharing it. Although the real reason I like these places in the wintertime might be sour grapes. I don’t have the money or schedule to go when everyone else does : )
My good friend Brett traveled from Kentucky to Martha’s Vineyard last weekend for his work. Brooke and I made it an excuse to take a little trip. It was beautiful. And I can’t wait to take more trips this winter. I feel sorry for all those people who have to vacation when it’s warm out.
