Travel is Not Safe
We are being reminded by CDC daily, to give up travel plans for the holidays.
We pulled this little bullet out of storage on Sunday. It was tempting to hook it up and drive 1,000 miles west to see our kids. But no. We decided to take a tiny 2-day trip, instead.
Goliad State Park
After we got the old "Bambi" cleaned up, we drove 2 hours to Goliad, Texas.
We knew from their website, that they had Covid regulations. We only saw a few campers from a distance, but it was nice to know there were mask rules, if we stepped into the office or restroom.
It was nearly 80 degrees, when we set up "camp". Everything seemed so impossibly ideal.
Don and I used to really camp. We don't mind cheating with a trailer, now. We use chairs and sleep in a bed. We're get along in our sixties. No guilt.
Mission Espiritu Santo
In 9+ months, I don't think I've been in a setting more peaceful than this.
This historic, restored Spanish Colonial church is one of two missions in the park. This one was just a 2 minute walk from our campsite.
We had our masks with us, but never saw another person. What an escape from news and worries.
We explored and played and had the place to ourselves.
There is nothing more healing than being in nature, especially in 2020. We were beyond lucky, with sunshine and warm temps.
Dinner was easy with chicken and veggies in the Dutch Oven.
We played games and listened to Christmas music, instead of news.
This is just going to be a weird Christmas. There's no way to make it normal this year.
But this little 2 night get-away, is giving us a huge lift. I'm ready to take on the holidays!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
