The last vacation that I took with my parents before getting married was up in Canada. For a change, we didn’t camp in a tent but instead rented a cabin that had real beds and a real kitchen. It was quite a treat! We took the dog with, which we also did not do very often.
It was actually quite different to vacation with my parents as a near-adult rather than as a child. I remember the vacation being much more relaxed, more enjoyable, and coming home glad that I’d taken time to spend with my parents and sister before marrying.
And for a change, instead of fishing all the time, my Dad took time out for fun and hooked the boat up to waterski. None of us had never done it before! I didn’t try that particular stunt, but my sister did and had a great time. Even now, all these years later, I’m glad I skipped this. It didn’t appeal to me then and it still doesn’t now. Which is funny since I’m usually up to trying things at least once. But not this one.
