How Are You Spending Your Summer?

For some, summer is a time to catch up on your reading list, enjoy some gardening or take a dip in the community pool. For others, summer is a time to take a family road trip or beach vacation. How are you spending the dog days of the season? Feel free to post a photo that shows the joy (or dread) of summer.

I went to Virgina Beach and left the sun, sand and surf behind to run in First Landing State Park, where a sign on the trail I chose cautioned that if you are bitten by a raccoon, you can assume it is rabid. Still, I had a great run on the flat, shade, scenic trail.

I am retiring from JHH next month, so I have spent the whole summer anticipating and planning all of the things that I will have time to do with my wonderful family now!

I am spending my summer picking up extra hours while I am on summer break. I am also preparing for my fall class, I will be taking microbiology. On the home front I am spending time with the children. I hope to take them somewhere fun before summer is over. Dutch Wonderland sounds good. 🙂

In early May of 2013, I visited south Florida including the Fairchild Gardens in old Miami. Even though I spent three hours inside the gardens, I only saw about a third of their collection and it was magnificent! The photo here shows some monster elephant ear plants, of which there were several species present throughout their collection. The gardens were exquisitely planned and maintained and included ornamentals and fruiting varieties as well as the most diverse collection of flowering orchids I had ever seen. There were also numbers of invasive reptiles including red, blue and black Red Headed Agamas skittering along tree trunks and along the paths. This place is a must-see for anyone who likes plants or who has kids >= 5 years old.

Two weeks ago I took a trip to the Midwest, visiting Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. Every day was a new adventure - from fishing to caving to attending a rodeo...and that is just the beginning. We saw fields full of camels and zebras (yes, you are reading that right...Gentry, Arkansas has a drive through wilderness safari - who would have thought?) and had coyotes running next to our car (not part of the safari).

And, as you can see in my picture, we went rock climbing. It was my first time, and to be honest I was terrified, but it ended up being so much fun!

I look forward to hearing about everyone else's adventures, whether you went on a fun trip somewhere miles away, or got your kicks close to home.
