All I Ever Wanted

We have gotten to Wednesday once again, which means it must be time to Choose and Defend. This is, as I've whined about incessantly, our busiest time of year here in the library. Our six week Summer Reading Program is our "signature event" and each year it seems like we add another element or two to keep the fun ramped up. It is fun, but tiring...and we are STRONGLY discouraged from taken time off during these six weeks.  So, of course, I am fantasizing about vacations. This thought leads us right back into Choose and Defend Wednesday. Okay...first, please remember that money is no object here.  Given these two choices, and these two alone, which would you Choose for your week-long vacation? Please remember to vigorously Defend your choice :)

Lounge on an Exotic Beach


OR

Outward Bound Adventure
 
It is your vacation. Your choice. What will you do? Choose and Defend! (And dream)

I'm going beach, provided there's lots of shade and cocktails served in hollowed out pineapples. I don't camp unless there's a Hilton involved, because I am the worst outdoorsman in the world. Also, snakes are outside.

And don't tell me about the dreaded beach snake and ruin my defense.

Oh, definitely lounging in a hammock on an exotic beach.

We have certain times too when we can't take vacation; two weeks before and two weeks after our the first week of a new quarter.

I do not even need to think about this one as I find myself fantasizing about laying in hot sand on an abandoned island with flowing cocktails just about EVERY DAY!

No question - beach! In fact, I'm working on planning a little beach vacation right now.

Beach for me, as long as I can wear sandals - wouldn't want to burn my feet on the hot sand! I would be in the shade of a palm tree, lying in my hammock with a nice refreshing cocktail in my hand. Bliss!

Beach. A vacation involves relaxing. I cannot relax without a proper bathroom and a cozy place to sleep.
I can still hike the shore and look for shells and tide pools to observe.
The sound of the sea will relax every nerve in my body and wash away any anxieties of life.
I truly believe that the ocean heals and renews us in many ways.

At one point I would have chosen the adventure, but as I am getting older... the beach sounds great.
