Living in a resort town we locals plan our daily schedules around the hours most likely to be, as we say, tourist-heavy. Oh, it’s not that we don’t like having them around, (well, most of them, that is) it’s just that we need to continue our lives as well - - and that’s not something they usually take into consideration.
So, we shop and run errands at ungodly hours then disappear when they begin their day on roads or beaches.
Some shopping was necessary after work today and I dreaded it in advance. There was no need. Most tourists were still jamming the roads and the market parking lot was less than half full. I was in and out in less than a half hour. It is sometimes nice to expect the worse and then be surprised at how wrong you can be.
This weekend would also have marked an anniversary in my previous life, but tomorrow I am going to pick up a bottle of champagne and pop the cork to this new life on Monday evening.
In any event, the weather is glorious here this week – and weekend forecast calls for more of the same – with daytime temps in the 80s and in the 60s overnight. Could we ask for better?
Have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
