Rooms With a View

Like many people my summer vacation plans have drastically changed. I’m taking a nostalgic look back at this vacation post from last year while I brainstorm some new ways to enjoy the warm weather in 2020.


If some of my recent posts haven’t tipped you off, I’ve been on vacation this week. I spent part of this past week at Myrtle Beach with my husband and some family, and it was a fantastic, relaxing beach vacation.

One pleasant surprise on this trip was discovering upon arrival at the hotel that although we didn’t have an ocean view room, we had wound up with a balcony on a side of the hotel that had a partial view. A small bonus, but I did really enjoy sitting out there in the morning to write before heading out to the beach, and star gazing before going bed.

So this week I decided to dig out other pictures I have of hotel views from past vacations. Some are more glamorous than others, but all of them hold special memories.

Glimpse of Jupiter from my balcony in Myrtle Beach.

Familiar buildings in Providence, RI. These are the same buildings often shown in episodes of Family Guy.

National Monument in Washington DC.

View of the Miami Skyline from a private cruise-ship balcony.

        You’re welcome! And thank you for your support. I am not always so good with reciprocation because I’m always so busy, but it’s my goal now to read other’s blogs. I learn when I do that. I really like your images from the various hotel rooms. I think it would be fun if you explore that further!
