Summer Dreams

Summer Dreams

Summer starts tomorrow for Paris and Ciel. A summer of band camps, smattered all over the calendar.

I’m not planning on taking any time off work – maybe just a day here and there to take a day trip. Summer vacation had been planned, but circumstances have caused those plans to be canceled.

When I was younger, summer was a given – we’d pack up the car and head down to Eccles-on-Sea and live in a caravan for 3 months. Around these (US) parts, that maybe known as a mobile home. Except, it wasn’t really a mobile home. It was definitely a caravan.

Aunts and cousins were there, also. And friends we’d made through the years. I still keep in touch with some of those friends, even today. Facebook is a wonderful thing!

Days were spent wading in the sea, building castles, digging in the sand, playing Go To Coventry. Evenings were spent telling ghost stories, or sitting around a fire, or running from caravan to caravan. As we got older, we experimented with hard cider. Eccles is where I had my first under-age hangover, and where my brother got freaked out about a HUGE rabbit hole that appeared in front of him and grew as he tried to sidestep around it! Thank you, Bulmers. Thank you.

What does your summer look like?
