Gardening where the sidewalk ends

We’re heading to the Washington coast for a few days. My family nearly always went there for spring break when I was growing up – I remember it as wild and stormy, often soggy, occasionally boring and mostly magical. Now I am passing along this tradition to my daughter, I hope she enjoys it and isn’t too jealous of her friends who are heading off to warmer climes.

I’m debating about whether or not to take a laptop – it would be kind of nice to have a few days’ break from the 24 hr. news cycle and I know it would be hard to resist the temptation to spend half of the vacation looking at garden blogs. Then again, I hate to get too behind, it’s hard to catch up!

Hope you all have a good rest of the week.

    Just be sure to dress warm. Duh. I’m sure you already know this. Maybe you should leave your laptop at home to avoid that weird worm/virus thing. 🙂

    It’s always windy and rainy when we visit the coast. But great kite flying weather! Enjoy. I’m trying to decide if I’ll take a laptop during our vacation in a couple weeks.

    Oh, have fun! I has just given a recommended hike over there and need to make a visit.

    Take the camera, leave the computer!
    Enjoy! – Paula

    Have a great trip Karen – looking forward to seeing some photos when you get back. We’re going to Washington, DC next week. I always try to resist bringing the computer with me, but even when I leave it home, I always manage to find one somewhere – go figure.

  7. Have a great week, Karen; it will be interesting to see if you chose or not to take your computer… 🙂

  8. So here it is, the 2nd of April, and I wonder if you are reading this today;-) I really hope you left the laptop at home…we are all too addicted to these things. Of course they’re nice but taking a break might be a healthy thing!

    Have fun!
