What do you like to do for your summer time fun?
 
Due to my job I don't get to take long vacations in the summer, but I plan several weekend excursions to have some fun.

My first trip is to a NASCAR race at Infineon Raceway to see a Nextel Cup race on June 25th. I cannot wait and I am so excited. I have never been to a NASCAR race before. The best thing is that I am going with some really good friends that I went to college with.

I also attend a couple of crafts faires and music festivals locally. Recently, I bought I book on hikes in the National Forests that surround where I live. As soon as the snow melts I plan on hiking some of the trails. In my job I don't get much of a chance to sightsee in the forest just work.

So, what do you like to do for your summer time fun?

Anything that gets me out of the city LOL. I am an equestrian, so I go to see a lot of equestrian competition...racing, polo, shows, events etc...as a spectator now not a competitor, although I am taking my neices to some shows and competitions this summer.

Also, my husband is a jazz musician, so we go to a lot of outdoor festivals through out the summer months. I guess we socialise more out of London through summer, we always spend a couple of days at Oxford University events and lots of parties. And weddings. It sems that ever second weekend these days is weddings.

Well, in a few weeks we leave on an Alaskan cruise. Paul's parents bought the whole family tickets. There will be 12 of us going. We've always wanted to see Alaska so we are pretty dang excited.

That's the only big trip we have planned for this summer.
We will do lots of weekend hiking and camping though and have at least
one trip to a friends cabin on the coast planned.

Oh, I would love to go to one myself!! I would want to take MIL's travel trailer and spend the whole weekend though. Watch the trucks on Friday, Busch on Saturday and then the big Nextel on Sunday, maybe leave on Monday, to stay out of the traffic. That would be so much fun!!!!!

We don't do much. Normally, we go out on the lake every weekend and go fishing, but, with it being down, we can't get the boat out. If I still had my pool, I would be spending it there. We have our family reunion in July, so, that is a weekend that I look forward to. This year, my only cousin get's to come down with her 2 boys, I've only seen the oldest, who is 4 now, once. The youngest is now 1. Her and her family and my aunt, live in Spokane, Washington. We get to see my aunt once a year, so, this is a very special one this year!!

On a hot, sunny beautiful summer day here in Hawaii, I like to pack a big lunch and head on down to my favorite beach. I'll set everything down under a shade tree, grab my floater and jump into the clear, blue water and just float all morning. Have lunch, and back to floating. That's life. If I have a bunch of family to enjoy it with me.................Oh Yea! This is where you'll find me on a hot summer's day.

We try to spend a couple of weeks in Greece (islands, preferably!) or in Italy. Earlier this year we visited Portugal. We haven't made any firm plans for the summer yet, but are seriously thinking about another trip to Corfu.

In September, we're due to re-visit Portugal. And we also like to spend long weekends in the highlands of Scotland. We have 2 weddings - one in Dunblane and another in Perth.

Also Wimbledon!

I would also like to go for the whole weekend. We tried to go to Las Vegas this last Spring, but could not get it worked out. But it was a good thing we did not go because the weather was not the greatest.
