Joe, Jamie and I are talking about taking a winter holiday in 2009. This is something we typically don’t do. With five in our family, going from snow to sun and sand is not something we’ve been able to afford. But last winter, during that horrible cold snap that went on for weeks, we decided if we didn’t get away we were going to go stark raving mad (or at least I was). Just then though, the cold broke, spring showed up, and we didn’t feel the need to go anymore.
However by all accounts, this coming winter is going to be another cold one. And the thought of having to endure a repeat of early 2008, after being pretty much robbed of any kind of a summer here in the Yukon, just about sets off a panic attack in me. As well, we are down to three in the house, so it’s actually in the realm of possibility that we could swing this.
So, I’m looking for suggestions. I’m not much for sitting on the beach day in and day out, although I could handle a bit of that. Really, I’m just looking for a spot that’s relatively inexpensive to get to and where we can relax with a good book, enjoy some delicious food and forget the meaning of the word parka.
