Competing Desires

Damon and I looked at each other just a few day ago and said, “Um, we’re having a baby soon. We’re not going to be at our leisure for many, many years.” Years. So now the furious scramble to find somewhere, anywhere, to get away next weekend has begun in earnest.

I feel like our desires are so small. They all seem to boil down to needing a body of water for swimming. I don’t care if it’s a pool, a lake, or the ocean.

But…

— We can’t afford to spend much money
— We don’t have a car
— We’re not going to fly
— It’s high season on the Jersey Shore and likewise at other nearby beach spots

I’ve never done a NY weekend getaway. I have no frame of reference. Anyone have any thoughts?

    • I would agree. Go to the mountains. The cheeze-factor on the Jersey Shore this time of year is scary.
      VT isn’t too far away – or there are some nice places in CT…just a train ride away.
