Once the heat comes, it stays. Depending on where you are. Some people have it year round. Luckily, Monterey CA favors the gorgeous coastline and the timid coastal weather.
Summertime had always meant laying on the lawn and waging the water hose until sunset. Visiting Grandma and Grandpa and grabbing the traditional vanilla ice cream from Linda’s. Lets not forget the endless cookouts and the occasional drives to the beach. This is actually my first summer with tourists constantly around. Little does one know, it’s good to be a tourist in your own town.
Its the first summertime without any schooling to look forward to. Its been a quiet summer, but the solitude has been useful. Despite the quiet, one is still challenged to listen.
