It's almost 1:00 AM. My one patient is safely sleeping with his trusty ol' cardiac monitoring showing sinus rhythm. All's well in our little CCU/ICU.
So . . .
In two days my wife and I are going on vacation to Florida to do the obligatory "in-law" visit. (My father and his wife lives on the west coast. Amy's mother and step father lives on the east coast.) Florida is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. The Florida beaches are nice. However, I love mountains and changes in seasons . . . especially spring and fall. Florida is a bit too flat for me.
This fall, we're traveling to western North Carolina for an anniversay vacation. Last year I had the pleasure of spending a week with my father at Clyde, North Carolina. Absolutely loved the area!!! The mountain regions were gorgeous! I'd consider moving to the region!!! I'm looking forward to our anniversay vacation in this region.
The following are my favorite top-11 traveling spots (from past vacations and/or cruise-ship travels):
2) Maine (almost any place)
3) Western North Carolina
4) Panama Canal
5) St. Croix (sp?) (snorkeling is wonderful!)
6) Grand Cayman Island (snorkeling is wonderful!)
7) Cozamel, Mexico
8) The Grand Canyon at Flagstaff, Arizona
9) San Francisco, California
10) Vancouver, Canada
11) The Adirondacks of New York
Be interested to know what your favorite vacation spots are. Hope to find some cool ideas for future vacation spots!

1 pt in ICU/CCU Land sounds nice.
I live in southern Wyoming and regularly travel to Northern Colorado for work. I see picture postcard scenery of mountains; viewing the mystical nature of the mountains turning blue, red, and purple are a regular occurence for me. It is lovely.
I yearn for variety when I seek a beach or water retreat vacation. Last year, our family went to the New Jersey shore. I grew up somewhat inland from there and have many happy memories driving to the beach/shoreline with my family.
Taking my children there last year was so exciting. I have dozens of pictues of us playing in the sand and water. My favorite memories were of the kids playing with their cousins and being washed ashore by the waves.
This year, I have worked out an oppourtunity to work in Upstate New York as a Camp Nurse. There are two lakes on the property, rolling hills, and new adventures to be explored. My children get to participate for free and we will all share a new adventure together.
I have always wanted to take a cruise to some tropical land. Anyone care to share?
Thanks for this thread Ted... heh that rhymes! :roll
