Back yard vacation
Posted By MyGuy
Where are you intending to travel on this vacation this year? How about
your own backyard?
Why don't you transform your backyard into a family paradise, where
all you have to do is open a sliding glass door and step into a topical
wonder? Where you and your family can enjoy a variety of different get-away
Just think about it; you have to make reservations, park your car at the
airport, and get there hours ahead of time. Wait in line to check into
your hotel, sleep in a bed that is not as comfortable as your own. Make
arrangements every day to eat at different restaurants. Stay 2 weeks only
to come home more tired, jet lagged and stressed out that you left. Have
you heard people say when they come home from vacation that you need a
vacation to get over your vacation"? Then it takes you about 6 months
of paying off credit cards and all you left with is some memories.
Why not create something just short of incredible in your backyard. A large
free form swimming pool, with a grotto waterfall slide, that is the best
possible baby sitter ever invented. The only time his kids stop playing
on it is for lunch! For the adults, a swim up bar with a palapa roof,
makes you feel like you're in the Caribbean. How about installing
some misters all around a large waterfall that makes it appear like a
cloud hanging over a mountain. At night for ambiance add a series of tiki
torches, with outdoor surround.
All this will increase the re-sale value of your house. All the money you
ever spent on expensive vacations has disappeared.
Needless to say we started planning our backyard re-do instead of planning
our next trip.
