I spent Memorial Day weekend at the beachside town I have been visiting with my family for over 28 years. It was my first overnight visit in over 5 years. My first post-divorce stay.
My Ex began coming back to this town about 1-2 years ago. I was glad he did. He has been visiting with his fiancee and our son. It holds special memories for all of us. To put it in perspective, this is where I have told my kids to sprinkle my ashes when I’m gone.
I was the third wheel with my girlfriend and her husband. They had never vacationed here, so I was able to provide some tour guiding assistance. I was careful not to be too pushy with my advice and let them suss out what they wanted to do.
I was so happy to drive up by myself. I brought my bike and pedaled around a couple of times. We hit some of my favorite spots for dinner, but not all of them. They are low-key, so we didn’t hit the busy places or the bars. I would have enjoyed an evening of live music and drinks, but that didn’t happen.
The weather was perfect. Our beach house was ideal for the three of us and their dog. I spent my days walking, biking — busy and I felt really good the entire trip.
This place brings back happy memories. My Ex and I rarely fought here. It was a place of peace. As my blog title explains, this place has always been about Family, Recharging and Nature — the beach is breathtaking. My drive up and back was relaxing. I stopped at a waterfront restaurant and enjoyed an amazing view and a delicious meal. My friends were chill and fun. My room was cozy.
I spent a weekend completely at peace. The Hunter fucked me silly before I left. I wish I had taken my vibe, but that’s OK. The walls might be a little too thin for that. LOL.
The weekend was the perfect buffer between ending Maggie & Co. and starting my new job. I had a full day at home to shop and cook before starting my new job. I felt fully prepared and eager to get going.
As I sat on the beautiful beach, I prayed, “May God grace me yet again with the opportunity to correct my mistakes and begin again.” Then I enjoyed a walk down the beautiful beach. I was already in heaven….
