I played hooky a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday and went to Goose Creek and Washington with a friend of mine. It felt weird but nice to get away during the middle of the week, and I hadn't been to Goose Creek, one of my favorite places, in almost 2 years. We had the place to ourselves and wound up hiking about 5 miles.
After, we had lunch in Washington, NC, and walked around downtown for a bit before heading home. It was a lovely and relaxing day. Everyone should play hooky more often.
