work and play - beach vacation - meg biram

Come January, I am always ready to hit the beach. I get pale and feel cooped up due to cold weather and I just start obsessively dreaming about the beach. Lately I just cannot stop looking at beach resorts on the Internet. Like it’s a problem. Honestly I’d pick up and leave tomorrow if I find the right thing. I’m going a little stir crazy over here. I need a 3-day dose of Vitamin D from the sun.

My friend Jaime says she always goes away for a few days to write her books and work on big projects that need focusing without distractions. She frequents Palm Springs because she lives in LA, but I’m feeling Florida or the Caribbean (shorter flight from DC). I want to take a few days on a beach to recharge, soak up the sun, and do some hyper-focusing on a few projects and writing. I’m afraid if I don’t do it I’m going to drive myself batty!

Have you been to a relaxing place you’d recommend in Florida or the Caribbean for this type of work & play vacay?
