I’m so very glad that I got the chance to be impulsive last weekend. The trip was everything we could have asked for. The weather was nothing short of perfect, and we never ran out of things to see. I have no idea how many miles (kilometers?) we walked, but it was worth the sore calves.

My husband got to get a close-up look at a multitude of seaplanes. The binoculars had quite a workout.

Many many thanks to our gracious hostess, who accommodated us with very little notice, kept us well caffeinated, and introduced us to the hilarity of Rayman Raving Rabbids and Guitar Hero. [Hey, leave a comment, would you?]
So tell me, what are your favorite impulsive things to do?
