What would your ideal day off look like?
Begin with excellent coffee (always) and enjoy it outside (preferably) with a campfire. In the warmth of the day, I would want to be playing in the Ocean, and spending time with my family. Then, my wife and I cap off the night going out for a nice sit down dinner where I get to try something I’ve never eaten before. What a great day!
