Are You Ready for the Summer?
I guess I'm asking this question a couple of weeks late, but better late than never. By now, everyone is out of school, people are working their summer hours schedule and making their weekend, or weekly, sojourn to the recreational destination of their choice. To help foster that summer spirit, see below.
For the majority of folks, the beach is the ultimate summer getaway. Relaxing, fun-filled, exciting yet peaceful. Unless you're John Candy in the film Summer Rental.
One of the pleasures of the beach is lying under the sun while listening to your favorite tunes on the radio. This is one of mine: "If This Is It" by Huey Lewis and the News (I'm a child of the 80s, after all).
The beach can be a place for work and play, if you're a lifeguard. It sounds like a good option for the rock group Blotto:
The Ramones immortalized a famous Queen's, New York beach: Rockaway Beach, that is.
Of course, the beach isn't always a safe place, and I don't mean the water!
(I love that the movie opened in January.)
OK, maybe the beach isn't your thing after seeing that clip. There's always the great amusements parks, such as Disneyland, Six Flags--and Wally World.
Of course, this is all based on the assumption that you've successfully completed your studies and haven't been left back in Summer School.
The pool has always been a place to enjoy the summer season. The Cars find it to be a place of "Magic."
If nothing else, you can always create your future summer memories at camp (the namesake of this post).
However you spend your summer this year, be safe, and make it great. Mungo Jerry knows how to do that.
