After taking a week off and traveling to Florence to spend some time at a B&B to recharge, I was struck by several things:
- There are NBA fans everywhere, regardless of what the ratings say. It just means more when your team is in it.
- It's windy in Florence
- I can't stop talking about the Blazers, even on vacation.
- I'd rather relax at the beach than party in Vegas.
I would have expected Florence to take advantage of their wind and build a bunch of windmills to supply their homes with electricity.
I went to a specialty T-shirt shop, and somehow the topic shifted to the Blazers, go figure. Anyway, I asked if they'd ever seen a Blazers Edge T-shirt. Sorry, Dave. That was a no. But they were excited about seeing Oden or Durant in Black and Red next year.
After spending a couple days gorging at breakfast (5-course meal) and walking and shopping around Old Town, I've come to the conclusion that the relaxing B&B vacation beats the high paced Vegas adventure anytime. I left feeling refreshed and recharged, exactly what you're after when taking a vacation. When I'd get back from Vegas, I'd feel like I'd need to take a vacation again. Work almost seems like a vacation of sorts by then. Either way, work calls again, and I'm going blind catching up on all the stuff I've missed. It's a tough life. Eight days to go!
Thanks to Marv and Laurie at the Edwin K for a great stay!
