Tell us your vacation mishaps!

You say your luggage enjoyed a nice round trip by air to Hawaii, but you got left behind?

Or perhaps you found a nice, secluded, back-country swimming spot, only to discover later that its dangers are the stuff of local legend?

Sometimes the vacation moments we remember best are the mishaps and misadventures that dismayed us at the time, but seemed pretty funny later.

And there are the great moments, too -- sunsets on the beach, sunrise the mountains. Those experiences sometimes seem even better because of the minor disasters that preceded them.

We want to tell us your vacation tales of woe (and subsequent joy), and we want to see your vacation photos, too.

Please email your stories, with your name and contact information, by Aug. 21 to Dan Taylor at dan.taylor@pressdemocrat.com. You can also call 521-5243.

For regular mail:

Dan Taylor/Vacations
427 Mendocino Ave.
Santa Rosa, 95401

We’ll print and post the best of the worst a little later in the summer.
