When we were in Washington state last summer, we had plans to take a ferry across the strait to British Columbia, a short day trip, over in the morning, wander around, have lunch and back in the afternoon. The night before J had trouble sleeping. It happens sometimes. It well into the wee hours of the morning before he was solidly asleep. I got up the next morning, leaving him to sleep and went for a walk, watched the morning ferry come and go, and made reservations for an afternoon whale watching tour. It turned out to be a spectacular afternoon.
This weeks Sunday five:
1: Do you sometimes change plans and sleep late?
2: Have you ever cancelled a trip at the last minute?
3: Have you ever left home on a trip, and not known where you were going?
4: What do you do if you find a museum or attraction is unexpectedly closed?
5: As you get older, are you more flexible, or more likely to be upset when things change at the last minute?
1: Do you sometimes change plans and sleep late? Obviously, I have been known to declare a day off in the middle of a trip.
2: Have you ever cancelled a trip at the last minute? Only a few times, a couple of times because of work issues, once because of health, and a couple of trips this year because of - well you know.
3: Have you ever left home on a trip, and not known where you were going? I have written about this once before. Back in the summer of 1990 I was living in Florida, I bought a new Honda Accord, I took a week off and started driving north uncertain if I was going to the mountains of western North Carolina or up the east coast. Someplace in Georgia I stayed on I-95 and ended up in Washington DC.
4: What do you do if you find a museum or attraction is unexpectedly closed? Walk around the corner to see what we would have missed if the museum had been open.
5: As you get older, are you more flexible, or more likely to be upset when things change at the last minute? I have mellowed, I am more flexible than I was before - I must have been a real pain when I was younger.
