Long weekends should be followed immediately with another weekend. I find that I’m usually more exhausted after a long weekend than after normal 2-day weekends.
The problem is with long weekends, I tend to think “oooo, let’s go away for the weekend, AND go to the movies, AND go visit our friends AND try to do the usual mundane things like grocery shopping as well”.
No wonder I need a weekend after our 4-day weekend.
Speaking of which, we had a great time driving around the Normandy/Brittany north coast.
Here’s a cute little windmill on the way to St. Malo.
And a lovely view of the ancient walls of Dinan.
For some reason, Festyland makes me think more of an open wound with oozing pus rather than of a festive attraction park.
