The Saturday Without Plans

This past weekend was just what my husband and I needed! We are going through a very stressful transition right now, as he is beginning a new field of work. We layed in bed on Saturday morning, trying to remember what plans we had for that day. The weekends lately have been busy, so we knew there had to be something we had to go to. After a few minutes of thinking about it, we were so thrilled to find that we had nothing planned! We started to make some plans of our own, which included a day at the beach with our dog, Max. This wasn't just any day at the beach, however. We ended up taking our bikes and rode 8 miles down the shore. It was absolutely amazing.

Here is Max resting on our backpack, on our way to the beach!

Saturday was such a beautiful day for a bike ride. The sun was shining, and it was the perfect temperature.

After biking 4 miles, we stopped to eat the sandwich, chips, and grapes that we packed for lunch.

We made sure to pack lunch and water for Max, too!

As we ate our lunch, we looked out to the view of many sailboats, some motorboats, and the occasional jetski. The sound of birds and the water was so relaxing. We truly felt like we were on vacation!

After enjoying a nice relaxing lunch, we made our way back to the car. The bike ride was fun, and it is something that I'm looking forward to doing again and again!
