Recently my family went on a vacation in Florida. We had a wonderful time and too much fun in the sun. I am not sure what it is about warm weather and the beach that is so enticing, but it is. Perhaps it is just the thought of going away for a week and getting away from the grind of normal life. Why is it that we are one of the best countries in the world to live yet we don’t have some of the perks of European life. People die trying to come into our country yet we complain about what it doesn’t offer.
For instance, we don’t get very much vacation time at all compared to over in Sweden. Now don’t get me wrong I love our country more than anything and I am very patriotic, but it just seems like we are missing out on quality time with our families. My family is the most important thing in the world to me and I want to spend time with them more than anything. If companies would just understand how much that time is worth, perhaps, they would give us more time. We would become so much more productive.
Anyhow, back to our vacation we had such an enjoyable time and I got to do the one thing I love. Sit on the beach in my new backpack beach chairs. These are the neatest things as they really do fold into a backpack that you can place on your back and take it anywhere. No more lugging one more thing to the beach as the cooler alone was enough to carry. My toes were in the sand much more than they were not on this trip. In the past, we have gone and spent most of the time doing land sightseeing tours. This time, we did the opposite. Hey, the last thing we want is to need a vacation from our vacation, learned that last time.
I can’t tell you how many people stopped to ask us where we got our backpack beach chairs from. I had to explain that they sell them at Target and on Amazon. One of the best parts of the chairs is they are so lightweight that we could easily carry them on our back if we wanted to go for a hike. Plus we can sit on our butt when the hiking is too tiring and we need a break. Hiking is one of our favorite things to do when we are on vacation.
This year we actually ran into a couple who had the same backpack beach chairs and we started chatting with them about how glad they were to find such nice beach chairs. She gave me a great idea making me glad we met them. She said that they actually like theirs so much that they bought a backpack beach chairs for a bunch of the people on her Christmas list. I am definitely going to do that.
