    Weekend getaway.

    Taking Ron away for the weekend. He's been very stressed at work and also helping his daughter every spare moment renovate the interior of her tiny house. Way too much going on and so I booked us at this adorable airbnb that we've both been drooling over for months. She's been booked WAY in advance, but it just so happened that she had a cancellation this w/e and so I jumped on it, and we're going to have a relaxing weekend canoeing, grilling steaks, basking in the warmth from the fire pit, C&R fishing, sleeping in, and generally unwinding!



    Click through these pictures! I know that this kind of getaway isn't for everyone but for us it's perfect!

    It's waay too tiny for me, but if you get good weather and can get out and about, it looks like a beautiful spot... I hope you get a really lovely weekend away

    If we planned to spend all our time indoors then yeah, the size would be a bit confining for us too!! But other than sleeping and maybe making breakfast, the rest of the time we'll spend outside. The forecast promises no rain, high 50's/low 60's, partly sunny during the day. And the evening hours will be cool enough to have a fire outside under the stars. Heaven!!

    Even if we do get some rain, there are covered areas to sit and swing and fish from, and we'll bring our ponchos and changes of shoes and clothes because we both like to walk in the rain, at least in those kinds of temperatures.

    Beautiful and peaceful location. Enjoy.
    My family always celebrates Thanksgiving with a fast. The faster we eat, the more food we get.

    The location is wonderful, the trailer is cute and like you said, you'll only use it for sleeping.

    Some highlights from our weekend getaway!

    "Old Delina Country Stor" It was a small restaurant as well. The food was tasty, the ambience amazing!!!

    We went fishing!

    I decided I was gonna need a LOT more alcohol before I was going to be able to bait my own hook!! And as copious amounts of alcohol and sharp fish hooks don't mix too well, I was thankful Ron took care of that for me!

    I caught a sunfish. After I thanked it for letting me catch it, I said goodbye and released it back into the water.

    Looks like you had great fun!
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Wife and I could handle the trailer, but I'm 6'1". Would have to fish from shore. When we fish, it's from a our powerboat or from the bank, definitely not in a kayak. But, overall, looks like fun.

    Looks great - I could fancy something like that for a break. I was amused by one review that pointed out that it could be 10 miles to the nearest Walmart or restaurant. Well, that's normal for many of us in rural Scotland. My nearest ASDA (part of Walmart) is 14 miles away and nearest small store is 3 miles.
    We're not here for a long time. We're here for a good time

    That looks like lots of fun Ronni. Not too small for us either.
    Sunfish were the first fish I caught
    Cute
