Default Staycation!

Since a few other folks are excitedly posting their spring/summer vacation plans... well, I have none. Givenj my recent circumstances and my stubborn desire to keep my house, I'm going to be pretty poor for the foreseeable future.

BUT, annually there's an amazing music festival locally only-barely-aptly-named, Bluesfest. And they just announced the lineup today!

http://ottawabluesfest.ca/

At only $200 for the ten-day pass, it's the only way I can afford a "vacation". I'll be working morning shifts at the store and doing this every night. Staycation! I go to Bluesfest every year and this year's lineup is pretty astounding. I'm pumped. Get lost in music for ten days? Yes please. <3

I take a couple of weeks of staycation every summer. Sit around the pool drinking margarita's and cooking on the grill. There is no place like home.

Count me in!



Although, there's a slight chance I'll be heading to Calgary for the Stampede!

I meant to add:

Tell me about your Staycations! If you have anything fun planned in your locale for the summer.

I also plan lots of hikes, bikes and being outdoors.

Great Big Seaaaaaaa



Nothing really planned, lots of hikes hoping to throw something, *anything* together for the rescue, since I sucked at FerretFest.
