Just back from a long weekend trip to Vermont. I had all these plans to hit Lake Champlain on a kayak, make a visit to the Boyden Valley Winery and maybe grab a hike over the 3 ½ days.
I took three naps instead.
In my defense, it was in the mid 60s and raining on and off. And we had a screen porch which was just begging to be napped on. The sound of an early fall breeze and rain falling on the leaves was an all-natural sleep machine.
I love naps on vacation. I think it’s my body fully relaxing and realizing that it has a chance to fill up the ‘rest tank’ a bit. And I’m not talking cat naps. I mean drool-on-the-pillow two hour knockouts. Thankfully my wife likes to read so she occupies herself with that. It worked well when the kids were younger to give us all a little recharge time.
We have friends who go-go-go all day. I can do that at Disney or Universal on a shorter trip. But if it’s a place where we have a rental, I’m going to utilize that space for some napping.
Anyone else nappers? Let me know on our socials (@dryfins).
