Stina and I celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary this week, so we are taking the week off together. But because we have so many other vacations planned this year that involve travel we are going to be staycationing this time, for the most part. The Houston boat show is this week so we are takeing a road trip and check it out. The plan was to drive out today and spend the day at the show and then celebrate us with a nice dinner and spend the night in Houston, but as we all know plans sometimes change. The Houston Texans football made it to the playoffsÂ this year and theÂ game is at NRG stadium where the show was supposed to be, the show was cancelled for the day, not such a big deal.
So today will be an us day and the boat show will have to wait until tomorrow. It’s a three hour drive to Houston, and while I’d rather spend that time on the boat it’s a wee bit chilly out today(17 feels like 6 with the wind chill). Sadly there won’t be any sailboats at the show this weekend, but we already have our tickets to travel to Annapolis in April for the Spring Sailboat show and we will be heading back out in October with Beth and Dan for the bigger show.Â We are really excited for both of these shows, as it will be our first chance to get on board a catamaran to see what we like and don’t like.
Road trip time, first gas, then snacks and away we go!
