Day 166 Trip with Mom-Bradenton Florida

Two years ago, right after starting this blog, I took my mother to the beach with my cousin. Before that, it had been over 10 years since I had a trip  with my mother.   I always traveled with my son, a significant other, or friends. When my mother would  ask about  going on vacation together,  I was busy with life and just like in the  song  Cat's In The Cradled, responded :

"I don't know when
But we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then."
In this empty nest period even though you're still a parent to your child, it's like retirement  because your child is now an adult and busy with his/her  life. My mother turned 80 this year! It’s time to try a new kind of vacation, one with my mother.
