For obvious reasons this oil spill in the gulf is simply terrible. But, if I can be just a bit selfish...
I WANNA GO TO THE BEACH!
I was on Facebook saying how I am ready to go to Destin this summer, only to be reminded that, really, I probably don't. Bummer.
I started to think of other beaches, but it seems that this oil spill is pretty much ruining them all this summer. I'm not sure how far we're willing to drive for a beach experience, but I feel somewhat of an urgency to go THIS summer. I have no idea who we will have in our home next summer, and if a trip to the beach will be possible or enjoyable.
Now, I'm trying to rethink vacation plans. I want to get out of Arkansas, but where to go for summer fun with no beach?
For now we're looking forward to out typical summer events: Magic Springs, Mid-America, the awesome pool at Chicot Co. State Park... but I am looking for a road trip. I want to go somewhere that cannot be mistaken for Arkansas. Any ideas?
