Don’t Let This Monster Ruin Your Vacation

inlet ICW2If you’re reading this blog you’re probably an adventurous person. You love the beach. You love the water. You love being outside. But even those of us who consider ourselves ‘adventurous’ can succomb to the monster that preys on so many adults – Routine.

Yes, Routine is the worst type of monster because, at times, it is necessary. With Routine we can get more accomplished, go on auto-pilot, sometimes it allows us to relax. Routine can be a comfort.

But it becomes evil when it steals time. When it turns our days, weeks, months, even years into a blur. Since we have a routine and don’t have to constantly make decisions, we don’t think about what we are doing. Do you remember what you had for dinner two nights ago? Do you remember what you said to your spouse as you left the house yesterday?

For most of us, remembering every single moment of every single day would be over-whelming. But your vacation is one of the things that should stand out and remain vivid for years to come. And the sad truth is, if you’re not careful, Routine will invade and snub out your vacation.

How to keep this monster under control? Adventure! Routine hates Adventure. Adventure might make you feel a little uneasy, might make your stomach tremble a little, might make your blood race, your heart thud. But that’s what makes you feel alive! Adventure stokes our imagination and creativity, opens us to new possibilities, and sparks youthful curiosity—no matter your age.

Adventure doesn’t even have to be anything too crazy. Just something outside your normal routine that pushes your boundaries. When you’re at home it could be as simple as trying a new cuisine or attempting to make a Baked Alaska or taking a hula-hoop class.

But here at the beach, we’ve got you covered!

Are you staying on the water? Rent a kayak for the week and get out as the sun comes up to enjoy the tranquil water and as the sun sets to see the clouds turn to fire. If you’re on the beach you can paddle out past the surf zone (we’ll give you pointers) and feel the thrill of seeing dolphins up close.

Have you ever been on a small sailboat? Take a lesson or join a tour and experience the simple yet amazing thrill of zipping through the water under the power of wind. No loud motor, no stinky gas – just the sound of the hull and the rudders gliding over the surface.

Have you ever paddled through a forest, tickled a horseshoe crab, floated on glass, or weaved through a foreign world teaming with life? We don’t do our tours to simply get you on the water. We chose our locations for specific reasons – the scenery, the amount of marine life, the history, the “specialness.” See a different slice of our world in each different tour.

Have you ever paddled to lunch? Both yummy restaurants and perfect picnic spots are accessible from our beach. Rent a kayak or paddleboard and we’ll point you in the right direction. Earn your lunch and then work off the dessert!

These adventures will help you banish Routine, connect with nature, with the area, with your family, and make memories that will last forever!
