Although Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial summer kick-off holiday, June is the first full month of the Summer Season. The month of June means that elementary and high schools are finishing up their academic years and families are heading out on vacation to engage in any number of summer oriented activities. In this post I wanted to highlight some of the images that not only allow us to think of the summer season’s first full month, but those we find inspiring as well.
Activity #1: Picnicking and Barbequing: In my opinion there’s nothing better than the aroma one smells of food cooking on the grill or fresh fruit and salads coming out of a picnic basket located on the beach or by a lake. Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Chicken, Pasta Salads, Watermelon, and Fresh Baked Cookies are all some of my favorite summer-inspired dishes, what are some of yours?
Activity #2: Camping & Fishing: One of my most memorable and inspiring summers came when I was a little boy and my uncle took me fishing on the lakes of the Adirondack Mountains. We’d fix ourselves a camp site, pitch the tent, make a fire very night and roast marshmallows under the starry night sky. Each morning, we’d wake up and launch our three-person row boat off the shore and set out on a fishing adventure that began with Sun Fish and ended with Trout. Have memorable moments from your childhood, ever inspired you as a parent?
Activity #3: The Beach: For those of you who prefer crashing waves and beautiful sunsets over the calm and still beauty of a lake-based atmosphere, then the beach is the place to be. As the waves crash on the sandy shores, I think from an artistic perspective and strongly believe that a new canvas unfolds during each tidal cycle. One of things I love about the beaches here on the East Coast is that during the month of June, tidal cycles tend to deliver the clearest water during the summer months, and that clarity is what inspires me.
