5 Things You Must Do This Summer!


Guest Post by Michelle Nemis

 The warm weather is approaching quickly as we search for things to do this summer. And although there will be lots to do with family and friends, there are some things that are summer trademarks and that must be done.

1. Get To a Cottage

Yours, a friend’s, a family member’s, somebody’s trailer, just go. Get away from the city or your hometown. A cottage is a home away from home and it’s nice to experience mother nature once in a while. Pour a glass of wine, open a cold beer, and relax in paradise, in privacy, or with the people you love.

2. Go Beach or Go Home

Get some sun on the beach this summer and don’t be afraid to swim. It’s always refreshing to hop in the water during high temperatures. There’s just something about warm san between your toes and that beach smell. Rent a sea-doo or bring a floaty, and soak up some rays. Everyone benefits from Vitamin D.

3. Boating

Go on a fishing trip, rent a boat, or book a cruise. It’s a great way to socialize or have an intimate get together. Sail across one of your favourite lakes and make sure to look back and take a picture of your city. Take in the fresh air. You’re sure to get double the tan on a boat so make sure to protect yourself.

4. Hiking

Explore new trails while keeping active this summer. Maybe you’ve always wanted to go to a well known provincial park, or visit that exclusive water fall that no-one knows about. Bring a backpack, lots of water and food. A hat is usually the best for keeping cool, and be sure to bring waterproof sunscreen – you burn easily when breaking a sweat. In the end, you’ll feel exhilarated.

5. Camping

Don’t bring your phone, your iPad, or your laptop. Unless you will be using it to play music. Camping is another way of escaping city life and taking in nature’s best assets. Put all of your worries behind you and relax your mind. Sit around the campfire and roast marshmallows. Tell stories. Laugh. And enjoy life. Make memories with the people who mean the most to you. Make new friends. Fall in love.

It’s always fun to travel and explore new places, so be sure to do just that this summer. You’ll meet new people and make memories along the way. Create a story to tell and a summer that you’ll never forget.

    I will most likely travel to visit a couple of my friends. One is in Atlanta, a couple I adore live in Louisville, and a wonderful family I truly love live in Wisconsin. Although flying is preferred, I will probably drive. If I have to stop, I will. I will also crane my neck to see all the wonderful foliage, and sky. Freshly cut grass in a breeze is also nice, as are the wild flowers usually in plentiful supply along the highway. I love antiquing so will probably do some of that, as well as simply enjoying Main Streets, which most towns and some cities have to explore. I don’t tan, ’cause I already am tan enough, but I do like wave running with a Yamaha or the like. I’m an above water lady, so love to make loud squeals as I enjoy finding a big wake and racing towards and through it. Summer will be enjoyed as always. I’m certain something I’ve not mentioned will also strike my fancy.
