A little NC adventure.

17 Jun

We skipped town a couple weeks ago and drove to North Carolina to visit Dave’s brother and family. We left in the wee hours of the morning and drove the 12.5 hours straight through. The goal was to get out of the house (where we’ve been since mid-March) and relax a bit before Dave (inevitably) gets called back to the office. Dave was able to work from a different home while we were there (His brother was working from home too.) and we could all relax at night and on the weekends together.

One of the pulls to visit was seeing family but … they also have a pool. We could feel a bit like we were on vacation at a fancy resort while floating in the salt water. Some days there were even poolside margaritas. Another day there was a movie outside while we lounged by the side of the pool. We grilled a bunch and ordered take out a couple times.

We didn’t go much of anywhere; no day trip adventures like we normally do when we visit them. We stuck to the house and learned that Emmett is a water dog. He’s never been one to willingly get into water until this trip. He figured out there are steps so he can go easily in and out; after that, he was in and out and in and out and loved it. We would throw his frisbee into the water and he’d swim to retrieve it. Other times he just chilled on the raft. It was great because it kept him cool in the heat. (Though one day the pool water registered a balmy 88 degrees.)

(I immediately walked to the garden to check the state of things; my veggies survived, in case you were wondering. Phew. More of a garden update to come.)
