My DD is going on a cruise with one of her good friends the the friends' parents next month. They are going on a 7 day cruise - Jamaica, the Bahamas, Haiti, Belize and back up to the southern tip of FL. I couldn't go because I couldn't get my passport together and I truly couldn't afford to go. My DD received funds from her grandfather for graduation, so she's using a portion of her funds for the trip.
I have three weeks of vacation time still coming to me this year. I am single and I have only a handful of friends. My family lives all over the country. The closest one is my little sister who lives just north of Atlanta. I was thinking about seeing her but I find it daunting just staying for a few days and it's not that much fun down in the deep south in the middle of July - too hot. My other family lives in boring places and/or they can't take time off to see me. My mom lives alone and enjoys her personal time and only up to a few hours of visiting time. So, what will I do with the extra time all by myself? Again - not a good idea.
I was thinking about just saying the heck with it and taking a beach vacation all by myself. Driving to HH or some coastal area and just having some 'me' time. Enjoying the beach, sites and sounds and just getting away from it all. I've never done this. I've spent the last five years taking time off for my DD (horse shows) and/or doing things around the area or working on my home. Things have changed for me - I'm divorced, single and starting my life all over again.
What are good places for a single gal like me to visit for a week?
