Can't you hear a Beach Boys' song playing in the background? Here comes summer. They say it doesn't officially start until the middle of June but here in Bradford we celebrate it as soon as it warms up and the leaves come out. Being a teacher summer always meant a more relaxing time. It has always been a time for fun and joy.
Here in western Pennsylvania we are a long way from a beach. We did spend a week in Wildwood NJ one summer a long time ago but we wouldn't ever consider us beach people. We do have a large lake within twenty minutes of us and we have always had a boat.
Summer is also a time for getting away from here. Our vacations mostly involve visiting family down South but occasionally we take trips. I get itchy to go and have an adventure in the summertime.
And nothing is better than summer right here in my own backyard. A little fire in the fire pit and roasting marshmallows is always a good time.
Do you have plans for this summer?
