Summer is here!
I love Summer!
It is my favorite time of the year. The hot weather, the long days, the beach...I am here for all of it...except the bugs.
Growing up in Queens NY, it was about a 40-minute ride to the beach...on a good day with no traffic, and on those long, New York summer days, when it was really hot, my Dad would drive me and my mom to Long Island to the beach. It was always so much cooler at the beach, and I look forward to the trip. As a kid, it seemed like it took forever to get there, but it was always worth every minute. The crisp salty air made me feel like I was in another country, another place, somewhere far from reality
As a young adult, the beach was still my favorite place. I have fond memories of my friends and me packing into vehicles and racing down the Southern State at ridiculous speeds, heading to Long Beach, NY to hang out on the boardwalk, or play around on the sand. Sometimes we paired off and made out (and sometimes more) as the sun set beyond the horizon.
I still love the summer...especially those long hot and hazy New York summers.
Always reminds me of all those good times, back in the day.
