New England Travel Ideas & Summer Solstice

Welcome, Summer Solstice, and the first day of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere!

School is out for most everyone, and our thoughts are turning to hot fun in the summertime!

But it’s not hot here, at least not in New England!  If you’re a kid, I guess it doesn’t really make a difference, as you’re off to camp of one sort or another, or just hanging with your friends.

We don’t have any immediate plans, as you can see from my wanderings in my Vicarious Traveler meme.  There will be one trip to Ogunquit, Maine with charming son-in-law’s parents that I’ll be looking forward to later this summer.  Maine’s usually cooler though, isn’t it?  Well, it has Maine lobsters, so that’s a redeeming factor.

Yet, now that summer’s here, it’s pretty hard to concentrate when I’m in the cubicle during my day job.  Of course, I thought I was retiring (still have 9 days to decide…tempting) and would get to have carefree time like I did when I was (much) younger.

I think back to those days when my kids were little, and I’d be setting up the Mr. Turtle pool in the mornings, hoping the water would warm up to let the kids play come afternoon.

It looks like the summer weather isn’t shaping up to be too grand in any part of the country this year.

So what are your plans? Maybe I can find some great tips!
