Snapshot(s): Long Beach, WA
We had planned on taking a trip to D.C., but with all of the work travel and whatnot we canceled the tickets (thank you Alaska for your great mileage plan — we only had to pay one $125 change fee to retain all of the miles because mine was free thanks to my status!) and booked an AirBNB in Long Beach.
S had never been here, but for me it was a trip back to the shooting galleries and arcades and the sandy beach of my childhood. It was a little bittersweet because everything seemed smaller and older. Or maybe I just grew up a little.
There are few places as beautiful to me as the beach in the springtime.
All-in-all, it was a lovely trip, though it was unfortunately cut short when S rolled his ankle (again) on a rock (see below).
So we (I) did a quick pack-up and had a nice sunset drive home.
P.S. It’s going to be a great summer of travel! We are headed to Portland for a fun weekend, to Kauai, and (hopefully) to Singapore! Safe travels, friends!
