Sometimes, an excuse is all thats necessary.
Sometimes, that excuse is as simple as, “its good for my soul.”
Which, I suppose, is to say that I need no excuse at all.
What am I talking about, you wonder? A reason to go. To get away from the city and find peace under the large oak trees at a campground near Stellenbosch.
Why wait for a weekend or a holiday or other “reason” to go, when my very-flexible schedule allows me to go on a Wednesday night?
So that’s what we did. We left after Lisa finished work on Wednesday, and we both went straight back to work when we arrived back in Cape Town early Thursday afternoon.
The weather was perfectly stunning, the timing was right, and we kept reminding each other that this much fun was okay - even in the middle of the week.
Time well spent, and indeed, it was “good for my soul.”
