This week’s A Photo A Week Challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography is for the topic:



Well, obviously vacation plans are indefinitely on hold.  So, we’re asked to pick anyplace we’d love to, wish to, or can’t wait to go.  I have no shortage of choices for that question, but I’ll pick two options for this challenge.  

Pick 1 is this fabulous little isolated hidden gem of an island called Ocracoke.  We go every year, for 2 weeks or so in late June or early July.  Sometimes, we sneak another week in during the fall.  Anyway, it’s our happy place, and I’d give my left…something…to be planning the trip to my favorite place:


My second pick, Florence, is someplace we’d planned to be in October, actually, not summer.  But, for this one, we’d already had AirBnB reservations, savings for plane tickets, and were investigating how to sign our boys up to be “Gladiators for a Day” during a day trip to Rome.  Super bummed to be delaying this trip, as it would’ve been our boys’ first trips to Europe.  Just delayed though, and soon enough, we’ll introduce them:

Oh, and a getaway to Key West wouldn’t suck either:

  1. Ah, these are great…. Do you think you’ll get to Ocracoke this year? We have no plans to travel at all. Even within the country. I’m super bummed because that was half the appeal of moving over – being able to get to Europe cheap and quick! But the way things stand, we doubt we’ll even be able to travel this fall. Boo! 😞

  4. What exciting dreams to look forward to. You have it pretty tough, there, but when travel is opened up you are SO fortunate, placed so near to many countries.
