High noon…an end to a memorable vacation.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “High Noon.”

It was high noon and I was boarding my flight back home. The end to our California vacation has come, but we will return. It was my son’s first time to visit and we truly packed it all in. Friends, family, hiking, Universal Studios, Santa Monica Pier, and of course time at the beach. I’m sure the locals thought we were nuts to be in the water (well…just our feet), but even with it in the mid-60s and windy, it was a heat wave to us. The New York winter has been a rough one, even getting some snow the last week of March. I had stopped trying to warm up. I’m now looking to the rest of April as a time for spring renewal, and I plan to spend as much time as possible outdoors, soaking in the sunshine.
