We didn’t have to get up at 5:30 in the morning. We slept in after 8 every morning, in the tranquillity of our air-conditioned hotel room 2510.
We didn’t have to worry about what to make for dinner. We walked the Promenade and ate out at California Dreaming, Ocean Basket, Pesto and Beach Bums.
We didn’t have to sit in traffic for 2 hours. We walked, bicycled and cruised on Segways. And fell off Segways and sprained an arm (never a dull moment when Ethan is around)
We didn’t have to stress about deadlines. Our biggest stress was the weather, and if it was going to be a beach day or not.
We didn’t have to spend our Sunday sorting out school clothes, lunches and groceries for the week. We spent last Sunday checking out sharks, mantarays, turtles and dolphins. We supertubed, tanned, slid and swam at Ushaka Marine World.
We didn’t spend our evenings assisting with homework and catching up on emails. We spent our evenings in the hotel room, ordering room service, watching series and sipping on craft beer and wine.
We didn’t spend our days in meetings, telecons and visiting clients. We spent our days digging our feet in the sea sand, swimming, building sandcastles, chocolate dipping, eating ice-creams and exploring our coastline.
We didn’t spend our weekly budget on bills, groceries, school activities or work lunches. We spent our money on making memories. The best money can buy!
