It was so nice to get away a few weekends ago. My getaway was only 30 minutes down the road and it was not much more than 24 hrs. but it felt like I had traveled to Hawaii for the weekend. All the college girls were in town, leaving a dozen kids behind, ready to catch up beachside in Avila. We had amazing ocean view rooms at the Avila Lighthouse Suites, the weather was 80 degrees, and we ate to our heart’s content at favorite old college spots. It has been 10 years since we all attended Cal Poly together taking practically every single teaching course together for four years. Of course there was still lots of classroom talk, but I knew that we had gotten old when the conversation turned to life insurance, mortgages, and of course our kids. It was sad to part again, but we will all see eachother soon as our next adventure together will be family camping this summer!
