On Sunday morning we made a last minute command decision to get out of town for a few days. In truth it was Anna who pushed us out the door, she had bags packed before I could even change out of my pajamas, and that is one of the many reasons I love her, for her ability to come up with a fun adventure at the spur of the moment. As much as it would seem that driving four hours and spending two days skating at maximum velocity wouldn’t exactly be relaxing, it was. I think the only way for me to unwind these days is to get away, and this was the perfect excursion. This beautiful concrete oasis is in the middle of nowhere and we usually have it to ourselves. It was time well spent for sure.
