Sweet Escape: Mini-Vacation

Sweet Escape: Mini-Vacation

If you shut your eyes for just a minute, you can almost smell the fresh sea air and feel the warm sunshine on your face.

You can almost taste the tropical drink, mmm, yummy!

Take a deep breath, lay your head back, close your eyes and try it!

Sweet Escape: Mini-Vacation


  1. Oh dont tempt me so!

  2. Mmmm I can smell the fresh sea air and feel the warm sunshine on my face.

    I am lucky enough to live in Mt Martha Victoria Australia.
    A great place to be.

  3. Looks great!

  4. aaahh, im trying, with below 0 temps. i need a vaca
    have a great weekend!

  5. Ahhhhh…..lovely…….


  6. I think I can taste that Mai Tai that is on the table there. yummmmmm!!!!

  7. Yeah, but where is my pina colada?????????

  8. I am so ready for a tropical escape…after this winter, which hasn’t been bad so far, but still cold and not fun in general…I would love an island get away.

  9. PERFECT GETAWAY!! Oh how I long for warm weather. Thank you for sharing this sweet escape this morning. I needed that!


  10. I feel better already! Thanks Melissa!

  11. Thank You! It is so bitterly cold here….I need that quite badly!

  12. Oh Melissa, I don’t know if that is torture or sweet escape. It has been in the 30’s/40’s here. I feel like my head is so frozen that my brain won’t be able to visualize properly! Beam me up Scotty!

  13. Esther Sunday says:

    I love to see where you take us on Fridays – this little trip is perfect for this time of year! I am soooo there! Love, Esther

  14. Phew! I have been racing around so much lately I could use a good rest! I am sorry it has been so long since my last visit! I have been lurking but have not had time to write. I hope you and yours are well! And, as always I have been enjoying your posts. Best!

  15. I am going to pack my bags, I like the thought of warmth….


  16. what a nice place to relax.

  17. Thank you! However, when I called out “Cabana Boy” no one showed up :(

    If I just had a tequila sunrise in my hand.

    DO YOU HAVE A WESTIE TOOO??? I do too!

  18. wowwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!! beautiful!!!!!!!! mary

  19. the farmers wife says:

    I’ll call the mortgage banker now. $1,800 per night. Ahhhh, perchance to dream.

  20. Oh Melissa,

    Being only 2 hours away from the border can make this tempting scene an all too tempting reality if I get in the car now! Darn reality! My girls are going to be home from school, soon, and I would never make it home in time…Sigh…


  21. um, did someone say vacation…I’d love to drop everything and take off right now!!


  22. Yep, I’d like to be there!!! ;)

    The cool thing is that living in Ft. Lauderdale makes this a daily reality (not counting the kids, the school, being wife and mom, the new travel business, and oh, of course running the house).

  23. I am not new to reading but new at commenting…I so love your blog. And today I really need to dream about warm breezes and sunny skies. Okay, so our skies were sunny today but it was 0 last night! Brrr….I just wrote a post about dreaming of Paris in Spring…that helped warm me a bit but your dream really helped! Ahhh….oh where oh where is that cabana attendant?


  24. Thank you, the mini-vacation was lovely.

  25. Beautiful Melissa, just what we all need right now hey? Leave the mess behind!! Have a wonderful weekend Melissa :) Jenn and Jacqui xo

  26. LOL! I just came back from a place like that & I can tell you it was THE BEST! Very depressing coming back to 25 degree weather but…as always I missed home & my bed! This picture you posted is a so gorgeously inviting~it’s nice to daydream! :)

  27. Ah, so nice…and it is soooooo cold in New York right now! Thank you!

  28. Oh, I am soooo there:)


  29. Melissa – its 9 degrees here – and in this state – any thought of water makes me feel even colder!!!

    ( unless its inside a hot hot water bottle!!! )

    hugs bug:-) Felicity

  30. Penny, Mosaic Artist says:

    aagh…warm tropical air and a pina colada…what more could a girl want!

  31. I can smell the Coppertone now…looks delightful!

  32. Ooooh! Calgon! Take me away!

  33. Sweet Cottage Dreams says:

    Looks like a dream spot, for sure!!!!


  34. Judy in KY says:

    It looks like heaven. I would even come out of hibernation for that!

  35. Oh! I can and I can also feel the warm water gently lapping against me as I take my morning swim. I wish.

  36. I know I’m a bit of a *nut case* but…. That doesn’t tempt me.

    -a pause- While anyone reading this, lets out a long gasp. ,-)

    If it were a Caribbean beach, maybe… But pools don’t do it for me. And it’s not quite that time of year as yet, when I really get t-i-r-e-d of Winter and start hearing the trade winds blowing by my ear. It will come. It will come. But so far ~ Not yet.



  37. I used to visit the Oceanspray site just to hear the sound
    of the waves (they’ve updated so no more surf).

    Thank you, Melissa, for the nice comment at my blog and
    for encouraging me to comment even if there’s nothing
    new to say. LOL!

    Hope that you are enjoying a wonderful weekend with
    your family.

  38. Ooooohhhh Melissa…just what we fellow Oregonians need right about now… :-)Sunshine,warm air,water,colorful flowers…aaahhh…sheer bliss…LOL
