Looking back, we haven't had a vacation, a just for us-no family-no military- vacation since our honeymoon, which was six years ago.

I'm happy to announce, that is going to change. Soon. Very soon.

We don't know where we are going.

We don't know when we are going. (Well, really there are only two weeks that I can go because we have 'online meetings' of my class).

I'm thinking some place warm (not snowy mid Missouri!), with sand.

And some place that has military bases near by for lodging.

We started looking at airline tickets last night.

Today, we talked about if we should take his daughter with us. On one had, it would be a lot of fun to do a family vacation, and as he said "so she doesn't have to wait until she's 22 to see the ocean like I did", however, we would both really love to go by ourselves, and enjoy each other....

I think in the end we've decided that it will be just us, and we plan to enjoy every second!

Any suggestions on where to go?  Which bases (probably more Eastern and Southern) have good lodging... or bad lodging! :)


  1. Have you thought of going to the East Coast and going to Fort Story? If you google Fort Story Inn (I think) you should be able to pull up their website. I have always wanted an East Coast beach vacation!

  2. I can only recommend Navy places--the Navy Lodge in Pensacola, FL was pretty nice. There's also one in Key West but I've never been there. Corpus Christi has a nice base but I've never stayed on it.
