Vacation is Over
It’s been a week or more with no staff meetings, conference calls or deadlines. You slept in late, ate out a lot and did some site-seeing. Now, as night time falls, you sigh, thinking all this ends soon. But you’re grateful for the vacation you just had and for a job to go back to. Life may have its struggles, but moments like these you tuck away, to remember later and encourage you through until your next vacation.
The Pensacola Beach Fishing Pier is a great place to view the sunset or sunrise. Go out past the surf, where it’s quiet and a great place to reflect on things.
I remember once about 20 years ago, before 911, I went to the Texas State Capitol and could walk around inside well into the night. The interior office doors were closed, but you could visit the rotunda and admire the architecture of the stately building.
I've been to Austin several times since then, but hadn't stopped there for a visit. Last month, we made an unplanned stop and had to settle for an exterior walk-around. That was fine though, since there is still lots to see outside and it gives me an excuse to go back soon.
