Lazy days. Basking in the sun, the sea, and the sand. Trailed by long quiet starry nights. When you think of summer, what do you think of? Strange question but sometimes some things come so naturally that we don’t give it much thought. But curiosity sparked I searched google for definitions. Here’s what I found which may be useful for Floridians and Caribbean Globe trotters who celebrate summer all year round.
Summer is the warmest season of the year and runs from June to August in the northern Hemisphere …(duh).
Summer is a time to embrace personal delights. Essentially do special things that inspire relaxation and enjoyment. This may include things like getting better at something. Taking on a passion (learn a new language, sport, pastime). Or simply just being. Kids look forward to tons of fun! Not to mention changing schools …to them a sign of growing up (smile). High school Grads activate college acceptance, and make preps for their new campus living (much to the despair of new empty nesters).
But let’s face it, Summer is a time to chill. Here are some fun stuff that you can do this summer (extracted from real simple).
See a movie at the drive in
Walk on the boardwalk
Play tag or a childhood game
