I just got back from vacation in Ocean City, MD. It was touch and go that I would go because of COVID-19 and the impending tropical storm. I wasn’t sure what I would see until I got to Ocean City. It was like there was no pandemic at all in some parts of the town as I drove down Coastal Highway to my hotel.
Here are some things I learned from this vacation:
I spent my Tuesday at the computer keyboard like I seem to do every day during the current quarantine. The good thing about today is that I had some work done on the outside of my house. I’ll accept it as a small victory considering everything that’s going on with COVID-19. I was originally going to delay my house projects until things got back to normal. Then again, who knows when that’ll be.
Some other highlights of my Tuesday include:
Ocean City, MD is taking some small steps towards opening up this summer and I can’t put into words how much I’d like to have my feet in the sand at some point. I’m fine doing it a comfortable social distance from other beachgoers.
I had the motivation to get some exercise in which is always a good thing. My gym can’t reopen soon enough!
I’m still full of more personal blog post ideas than I have time to write with my schedule. My current plan is to outline out the ideas in spare moments so I have some preparation work and ideas written down in Google Docs.
I look forward to things picking up this week and remaining productive.
I just got back the other week from spending a week’s vacation in Miami Beach. A love of the beach and the ocean is one thing I inherited from my father. Vacations and time off are one of the positive outcomes from returning to full-time employment back in 2016.
I couldn’t bear to spend a milestone birthday at home in Northern Virginia, so I found myself in Miami Beach for a few sun-soaked(and sweaty) days. It was good to get away again. Years ago, I was in Miami on a project and had to stay over a weekend. The client pointed us to Miami Beach, and I’ve been back a few times since then.
