Happy Friday friends! Time for Friday Daydreamin’! My favorite day of the week as I get to armchair vacation through all of your lovely photos!!
Have you ever got in the car and just drove?  No destination in mind, just want to get out and explore?
A few weekends ago, we piled the kids in the car and drove out into the Texas Hill Country – the kids of course were aghast that we has no plan, “Where are we GOING?” they kept asking?
It was one of the most memorable Saturdays of our summer.  We discovered new towns, new BBQ restaurants, and ran across some Texas History….like one of the oldest Suspension Bridges in Texas.  
The “Sunday Drive” novelty is lost these days, I’m afraid.  Everyone is busy and rushed, with a destination in mind every time they get in the car.  But we found it to be refreshing, discovering new areas so close to home.  And we vowed to do it again. 
How about you?  Do you “Sunday Drive?”
Link up your favorite travel photos here each Friday – close to home or across the globe, we love to see them!  And take a few moments to visit other photos as well!

    I’m guilty of driving around without a destination in mind back when my oldest kid would nap in the car as a toddler. I would just drive around Lake Travis and back roads. I stumbled across so many beautiful sights that way. I guess I should start up again.

    Sounds like a great day! We used to go for Sunday drives as a kid but I don’t think that I’ve done it since – brilliant idea!

    We sometimes do Sunday drives trying to figure out which beach to go to. Living in between Orange County and San Diego, we have quite a few choices. :) Most of the time a plan is in place since I’m a notorious planner.

    I love to drive so I’m always eager to hop in the car and go. My husband and children, however, don’t see the point. I remember Sunday drives with my grandparents’ as a young girl. It was always a special time. I feel a Sunday Drive coming on with my own family. :)

    I suppose the Sunday Drive used to be popular back in the days before we spent almost all our time in the car during the week! But it would be nice to get in the car without a destination once in awhile.

    We do not usually Sunday Drive. Sometimes like tomorrow we are going boating. The whales and their babies are playing in the bay!

    We are very familiar with the Sunday (or Saturday) drive these days! It becomes very important if the little guy needs a nap, and we don’t want to be stuck in the house! Love your bridge photo.

    Since we’re still relatively new to Calgary we do plan on exploring on one day of a weekend – most weekends. Sometimes its hiking but in the off season we definitely like to check out the countryside.

    Our family took Sunday drives when I was growing up and I still love to just get in the car and go somewhere — anywhere! Just don’t get enough opportunities to do that these days. Great fun.

    I don’t have a car anymore, so Sunday drives are not an option. However, I’ve been known to get up on a Sunday and catch a bus to anywhere for the day. That’s always fun, too.

    Haven’t done an aimless Sunday drive for so long-since the kids came I’ve always felt like I need to plan our adventures. I hope to feel that freedom again one of these days and this post gives me hope:)
