Harper Lee from A to Z: V is for VACATIONPosted: April 25, 2014
Even Golden Retrievers need a little vacation every once in a while. My humans like the kind of big vacations that involve airplanes and ships, while I prefer not to fly or sail. I enjoy loading my chariot–actually, I enjoy watching my humans load my chariot–and then hitting the road for a little close-to-home R&R. Last weekend, we took a short drive north to one of my very favorite mini-vacation spots: Butler Greenwood Plantation and Bed and Breakfast in St. Francisville, Louisiana.
This was my fourth visit to Butler Greenwood, and I love it more and more every time I go. This bed and breakfast is what vacation is all about: really getting away from it all. On their last big trip, while they were somewhere in the middle of the ocean doing absolutely nothing, my humans started to feel a little guilty. Were they being a little too lazy? And that’s when a very wise lady explained the difference between travel and vacation. Travel involves visiting new places, seeing new sites, experiencing new cultures. Vacation involves resting and relaxing . . . nothing more . . . that’s it. I like vacation.
After we had settled into our little cottage vacation home and explored the beautiful B&B grounds, my humans really started to relax . . .
. . . while I sat on the back deck and stared down at the lovely ravine below. And that’s pretty much how we spent the next two days of our mini-vacation . . .
. . . my humans lounging and gazing lazily through the treetops . . .
. . . and me resting my head and staring off into the distance. It was everything a vacation should be.
