The Last Day Of Vacation

Day 15 - Wednesday:  Although not technically the last day of the vacation (we still had 2 long days of driving home to go) this was the
Our Campsite at Gulf Shores
last chance to relax.  To be totally honest I really had not relaxed much the whole time we where gone.  I monitored work by email and online software, as well as doing a number of work related tasks each day.  It's hard to break away entirely from running two businesses and 20 employees.  As I mentioned in an earlier post I usually go through phases as I am away, but this trip was much different and I never felt like I really relaxed and enjoyed the time off.  I kind of screwed up the whole point of getting away and I regret that.  I had hoped I would come back all refreshed and full of revitalized energy, and I just never let go of things.  We are so connected now with smart phones, email, texting, cloud computing and wifi access just about everywhere.  The good news is that I could work from anywhere, the bad is I will never get away from it either.

We got up pretty early and drove over to the beach for one last splash in the ocean and to catch a few rays.  Afterwards, we took a drive along the peninsula stopping at a few shops getting a couple of souvenirs and then stopping for an early dinner at Bubba's Seafood.   While camping I am very happy with just breakfast and then an early dinner at say 3 o'clock.  Just skipping lunch altogether.  It doesn't seem to work out when we are home though.

We finished the night talking with Joe & Shelly and wishing them a safe trip as they continued on to Red Bay & Nashville.

The finally 2 days where pretty uneventful as we first drove back to Cave City, Ky where we started the trip and the half way point home which worked out well.  The finally day I was up at 4:30 a.m. and we got going early making hit home by 2 p.m.
