I've been under the weather this week but will be around to visit tomorrow evening.
Here is Toni's meme and mine follows:
I prefer traveling by car or train.
I get sick on airplanes, especially small ones!
I used to fly with student pilots (cheap easy way home from school) and had cornered the market on airsick bags. The students had to stall the planes in flight and then recover..that didn't bother me as much as the up and down movement of a small plane.
2. Hotel, Camp Grounds or Summer Cottage?
5 star hotel please. They get those stars for a reason!!
I have camped quite a bit but now I prefer comfort.
3. Sightseeing, Weather Related Sports or Relaxing?
Sightseeing is nice. Relaxing is also nice.
My days of ice skating and horseback riding are over.
4. Favorite vacation season?
I love the fall for trips.
Chilly, crisp air in the mountains is wonderful. I also like the cooler days at the beach in September and early October.
Here is another meme if you want to join in.
Again, if you do, do it on your own blog, mention it here in comments so others can visit your blog!
Summer MemoriesSummer is the official time for the beach. It belongs to us I think like autumn belongs to New
Our population more than doubles for the summer as people return from their Florida homes to NJ and north Jerseyites (known as Bennys) and out of staters come for vacations.
Our beaches are simply some of the nicest anywhere.
1. What thoughts come to your mind when you think of 'summer'?
Heat, humidity, beach, blue skies, balmy breezes, birds and sunshine.
2. If you could 'fix up' summer, make it perfect, what would you do?
I would do away with the extreme humidity and temperatures. I would do away with biting bugs which ruin summer for me.
3. Which do you prefer---picnic or cookout?
cook out but, sometimes you can cook on a picnic too!
4.Do you have a special summer memory ?
Coming home late at night from the beach with a boy I liked and wishing I didn't have to go home at all. The summer night breeze, the moonlight, the sound of the surf all linger in my mind from that day. It was a great day.
I really, truly liked that boy....sigh.
Also memories of being with my Daddy in Wildwood.
5. How about a special summertime song?
I have a list of them!
Theme from a Summerplace.
Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts.
All Summer Long by the Beach Boys is a particular favorite
Surf City by Jan and Dean (yes there is a Surf City in New Jersey as well as in California and yes, the surfing there is good!)
Got a list of your own?
Have a glorious weekend.
