vacation and movement.

Just as I enjoy leading a relatively active lifestyle, I also appreciate a bit of activity on vacation.  This has never meant spending my mornings in a hotel gym or cranking out pushups on my hotel room floor.  It does, however, mean picking up my feet and breathing in some fresh air.  In the past, I woke up to sunny runs along the beach.  This year, I appreciated the simplicity of a walk.

I began many mornings with walks on the beach…

Or along the rocky coast…

My family walked to dinner…

And to reach entertainment…

We walked on the golf course…

We walked to the beach…


In the sun…

Blanketed by fog…

And just to appreciate the view.

I love walking.  Accompanied by some time on my yoga mat (have I mentioned I held crow for the first time this week?), it is all the movement I need.

How do you move on vacation?

  4. My family’s philosophy has always been that if your feet aren’t in constant pain by the end of a vacation day, you obviously haven’t done enough
