We’re going away for the weekend without having to see any relatives!

We’re headed to Morehead City, N.C., and to Atlantic Beach and Beaufort, where the seafood is fresh and the surf is warm.

It’s only for the weekend. But next Friday we head to Kentucky for a week with Trish’s family, so this quick getaway will let me recharge my batteries and relax before we encounter Trish’s frenetic family. And since I’m going to a business meeting Monday, one night’s hotel stay is on the boss!
