We came back from the beach feeling refreshed and renewed. I’ve said this before, I know. These mini weekend getaways are proving to be critical for us. This week was perfect timing for this because of his early therapy sessions. We were both more relaxed trying to get him there early because the drive time was only a quarter of the usual time.
We spent time on the beach, in the beautiful hotel room, and checking out the town. I got a lot of quality beach time during Nicks therapy and nap times. I took time to feed my soul with jogging, walking, reading, yoga, napping and sand sculpting.
We borrowed the sand wheelchair and let Nick experience the ocean close up. He napped on the sand and enjoyed the sunset too. We had a super fun, yet accidental lunch with friends, and we cooked $4 lobster tails on the hotel BBQ.
On the last night, Nick and I enjoyed a romantic date. We ate sushi and watched live music and dancing. Then we sat on the stairs over looking the dark night and majestic ocean waves. When I got too cold, we took a seat by the outdoor fireplace at the hotel.
Now that we’re back home it’s time to get busy. More swimming, more stretching, more walking and more working out.
Tonight we went bowling for a bad ass friends birthday. Nick bowled for an entire game and got 12 whole points. Bowling used to be a semi hobby for us, so this was certainly not typical for him. Excellent fun though, and he’s really such a good sport. Bowling in a wheelchair looks awkward. It was everything he had to not hit the ball on the wheels. And of course, he refused to use the kiddie ramp. Those 12 points were all him!!
