How Do You Describe Vacation??

We just returned from a quick vacation and it was absolutely wonderful. Are there any words which can describe the feeling of relaxation while on vacation? Is it the cool, brisk wind which accompanied perfect weather or gazing up at the clear, bright, blue sky? Or staring with awe at mountain peaks and valleys knowing the Creator of everything is still in control today? Is it the joy of relaxing and just enjoying one another? Is it the feeling of not having to be a certain place and looking forward with anticipation to going on a short day trip where all you do is look around and enjoy God's creation. I think the best part is just being relaxed and happy! Smiling at one another, taking time to love and appreciate each other. These are the moments I will try to capture as we return to our everyday lives.
Of course I took lots of pictures...but I won't overwhelm you...yet.
Here is a sunrise in the Smokey Mountains:
This is taken off the deck of our cabin:


Here is a patch of glorious color, right outside the bedroom window?

No wonder I woke up happy!

This was the view from the other side of the room:

It was a wonderful, quick vacation, but the memories will always be held close in our hearts.
