So, we did go, and it was lovely.
It was rainy and stormy and we ended up stuck on the island for one extra night — we were by ourselves, since our friends, without a car, managed to make it home. It meant we condensed the family obligations into one day and had an extra day to go look at beaches and go to bed early in a cottage by ourselves.
It is exhausting being out in the weather.
So that was nice —
I think I am finally worn out, though. Good thing there are no more trips, vacation or otherwise, scheduled for a while.
