Where in the world?
Wife and I are enjoying a few days of R and R as I write this. After 28 years of marriage, if we have learned anything, it is how to compromise. I say that because that is what this vacation is about. Wife loves the beach; I love baseball. It's really a good deal for Wife because she is a pretty big baseball fan too. I am OK looking at the ocean but I tire quickly of sand and sun and especially the combination of the two. So where are we? Near Vero Beach, FL, in a condo just steps away from the beach. We flew to Orlando late Saturday afternoon, spent the night there and caught a spring training game in nearby Kissimmee on Sunday afternoon before driving down here. Our routine until Thursday is one of my getting up for a long early morning walk while Wife sleeps in, Wife spending the morning on the beach with the sand and sun while I putter around and read out on our little deck, then both spending the afternoon at one of the nearby spring training ballparks. Late afternoon refreshments looking out on the ocean, an early evening walk for Wife (have you figured out that she's a night person and I'm a morning person?), then a nice dinner round out the day. Thursday morning we will head north a bit,catch a game near Cape Canaveral, then spend Friday and Saturday at Walt Disney World before heading home early Sunday. Yes I did say Walt Disney World and yes we are two 50-something adults who will be unaccompanied by minors. One thing we definitely have in common is that each of us is a child at heart. (I have written this on Wife's iPad which is not allowing me to make paragraphs and which is, of course, 100 percent responsible for all errors).
