My school age daughter's summer vacation started Friday! We have lots & lots of fun activities planned for the next nine weeks, most of which will take place right here in our own backyard.
And why not? We are blessed with beautiful weather plus lots of fun things to do. Every time I walk through the entryway of the Wild Animal Park in Escondido (where we are members; we go to the Animal Park much more often than the Zoo simply because it's closer), I think, "People travel thousands of miles to vacation here!"
People come from Europe and Asia and all over North America to enjoy this fabulous playground we are lucky enough to call home.
Last summer our vacation flight home from Vancouver to San Diego was mostly filled with Canadian families with young kids heading south. Their excitement was palpable. The beach! The mountains! Our perfect weather! The Zoo! Wineries! (Yes, they know about our wineries, even if they say Teme-CU-la instead of Te-MEC-ula.)
Many of my friends are doing staycations this summer. I say: yippee! Hooray for the staycation! Revel in it. We have so much to do, see, and explore around here.
Have a wonderful day here in the beautiful Temecula Valley!
