Mind the gap.

vacation: (n)  1 : a respite or a time of respite from something, like a blog : intermission
2 a : a scheduled period during which activity (as of a blog) is suspended
b : a period of exemption from posting granted to a writer
3 : a period spent away from home or personal blog in travel or recreation,
as in  “I had a restful vacation at the beach, even though I was exhausted keeping mental notes about what would make good blogging fodder.”

Etymology: Middle English vacacioun, from Anglo-French vacacion, from Latin vacation-, vacatio freedom, exemption, from vacare   Date: 14th century (And yet, the linguist in me will be busy ruminating on the Spanish or Portuguese, vaca, meaning cow.)

    We’re in Topsail Island, NC — about 45 minutes from Wilmington (way south of the Outer Banks).

    It may in fact be God’s Seaside Locale.
