Honoring Summer

When you're an adult the seasons pass one after another with very little celebration, unlike when you were a kid and each season had its activities and holidays. In California, with its endless summers, it is even more difficult to distinguish the seasons as each day blends into another.

So, in honor of summer I will find a way each day to take a mini-holiday. Criteria is that it has to be cheap or free, within walking, biking, BARTing or City Car Share distance, involve outdoor activity, and summer attire.

Let the summer games begin.
