The house I'm staying in during this vacation has a private pool. Having a private pool was one of The Most Important Factors in choosing a place to stay. On previous trips, when I didn't make a private pool a priority, I was sad to discover that most pools are closed at the times I wish to swim. I, then, discovered that the pool was colder than I'd imagined and had to pay for the pool to be heated.
To justify these expenses I made it a point to go swimming in that eventually warm pool Every Night I stayed there. So between ten p.m. and five a.m., you could find me floating or swimming in that pool for at least half an hour.
One of my co-vacationing friends always drives to the nearest Krispy Kreme before entering the vacation home. We don't have Krispy Kremes in Massachusetts at the moment (due to a poorly thought out 7-11 deal in the early 2000s), so whenever he is within an hour or so of the sugary confections, he picks up a box or two for everyone to enjoy.
When you take a break from your everyday routines, do you develop a new ritual or rituals? Tell us about it/them.
