Odette’s Diary Entry: Vacation in Paradise?
Whoops, I forgot to take this with me when I went on vacation, so hopefully, I can remember everything that happened. Derek and I left the kingdom on our yearly vacation to have some time to ourselves. This year we had decided to go to Isle Paradies, where it is like spring every day of the year! Not too cold, not too hot. Everything is freshly blooming and the air is filled with romance. Just the place for quality time with my handsome Prince! It had been so hot and humid around the kingdom so we thought having a cool down would be just the thing we needed. It was a lovely vacation but, of course, not without challenges.
We had a special boat come to take us to the island. It had been a very long time since I was able to sail. Everytime a chance arose I always chose to stay behind. But since it had been so long, I figured I would be alright, right? Wrong. I got seasick! Luckily, it was only one day of sailing. I spent most of it huddled on the bed, trying to sleep through it. I kept telling Derek to go have fun doing all the boating activities with the other men, but he stayed by me. This experience helped him realize why I was always so crabby the first couple days of my summer visits when we were younger. It’s not easy to play nice with a queasy stomach
I was so appreciative when we landed on solid ground again, and the place was beautiful! Lush flowers surrounding the dock, and when we got to the main roads, all the trees were in bloom! It was stunning! We rented a cottage on the island and we were able to rest and plan out what to do for the rest of our trip.
Most of those plans didn’t stick because, of course, we caught a small week of the rainy season. The farmers market was closed and many events were cancelled. Derek blamed himself because he wanted to go this month instead of the previous month when there were clear skies the entire time. You can’t predict the weather though so why not make the most of it?
We took off our shoes and went walking on the shoreline, not even caring if the sea hit us since we were already wet. Barely anyone was out and about because of the rain, so we had all of the gardens to ourselves. We were able to see everything at our pace and were as loud as we wanted to be with our conversations. Then we curled up in the cabin, hung our clothes to dry and spent the night in front of the fireplace reading to each other and talking.
Even if it wasn’t the vacation we had imagined all year, we had a wonderful time. It takes more than a little rain to ruin our parade!
