I went to the beach alone this year for vacation. Some of the days were amazing. I drove two hours to go to another states beach just because I liked it so much the first day when I went. I wandered and shopped and got to sit and stare at sculptures till my eyes hurt. Those were the good days. The bad days were the ones where I had a random full blown allergy attack hit several times while I was there. I let myself be sick and wallow in the self pity for a day of two before reality caught up with me and I was back out driving around. Be then however Bike week was in full swing and the nice bikers I had been dealing with all week turned into drunks and road hogs who had no concept of how to drive. I left a day early.
