A summer list…

With just a few weeks away until summer FINALLY starts in the land of the Queen I thought it would be cool to share this list with y’all.


After a long and wet winter the sun has decided to show up and make all the gringos happy, sticky and red (some of them a bit TOO red).

Coming from a warm (and beautiful) country I have to say WE LOVE summer and it is a reminder of lots of good stuff.

 Everybody has their down list; here are my favourite things about summer:

  •  lemonade
  • grilled burgers, steaks, fish, fruit…
  • summer thunderstorms
  • the long, lingering daylight hours
  • watermelon
  • napping in a hammock
  • sunglasses 
  • the smell of sunscreen
  • picnics
  • daytrips to the beach (and the reminder of it with sand everywhere)
  • swimming
  • camping
  • drippy ice cream cones
  • easy entertaining on your porch or in your backyard
  • swimming out to a floating wooden platform in a lake
  • sleep-away camp
  • outdoor concerts
  • canoeing
  • sunny days = sunnier moods
  • the sound of lawn mowers
  • open windows
  • sitting in the shade on a hot day
  • the sound of ocean waves
  • a cool breeze on a hot day
  • flip flops
  • the smoky smell of people barbecuing
  • relaxed attitudes
  • surfing
  • dogs with their heads out car windows, tongues wagging
  • bicycles built for two
  • snorkeling
