Boyancé and I are going to take a little mini-trip right after Christmas. We want to stay within 4-5 hours of New Orleans. He thinks I'm insane for wanting to go to the beach. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE IN THE WATER TO ENJOY THE BEACH.

I grew up in SC and we went to the beach all the goddamn time. We always knew someone with a time share or property or something, and would go spend New Years or Thanksgiving there. Boyancé is from The Middle (upper region). He is used to winter being a time of mourning and hiding inside.

Two reasons I need support here:

1. I want what I want dammit.

2. There's not too terrible much in this radius that a) we haven't done or b) doesn't involve me being in nature. ICK.
