Member117779216901Jul 27 20 - 20:29 I was backpacking in the western part of Ireland, in County Galway, spending long days hiking from one hostel to the next, taking in the beautiful sights along the way. On one leg of my trip, while walking on a road, I passed by a pheasant on the side of the road to my right. It looked like a male pheasant, due to its bright colored feathers. I did not have time to stop to admire its beautiful colors, mostly blues and greens if I remember correctly, so I continued along.

A minute later, I looked back to see that the pheasant was following behind me, so I slowed down to see if it would try to catch up with me. It did, and the pheasant soon walked alongside me on my left. A short time later, a car coming towards us from the opposite direction slowed down and pulled to a stop beside me. “Is that your bird?,” The driver, a German tourist, inquired with surprise. I imagine it must have been an odd sight: a small wild bird walking side by side with a girl carrying a large backpack on her back, as if the bird were her pet dog. “No,” I replied, “He began following me as I was walking along.” The man smiled, wished me good-day, and drove on.

We continued walking on the side of the road, but after a few more yards, I thought to myself, “It’S an interesting thing to have a friendly bird walking with me, but I cannot possibly take him with me, and as it is getting late in the day, I must hurry along.” I picked up my speed to a normal pace and the pheasant soon began to fall behind. Sorry, birdie, I cannot stay at such a slow pace, dragging my feet, as I must make it to the next hostel at a reasonable hour in order to get an open bed.

Suddenly, I felt a pecking on the back of my leg. I ignored it, but then felt another pecking. I turned around to see that the pheasant was up in arms, trying hard to keep up with me, and whenever he managed to catch up, he would attempt another peck before falling behind again. He appeared to be indignant, squawked at me and spread his wings, as if to say, “Why are you walking so fast? Slow down!”

I began to feel quite alarmed, and as I tried to move away, he would run after me. I began shooing him away, kicking my foot in the air to scare him off, while he would pause but continued advancing towards me, as if refusing to be left behind. I could not run far because of my heavy backpack.

I backed away from the pheasant and found myself in the middle of the road, and in the distance, a car was fast approaching. It filled me with sudden fear, but fortunately, the driver had seen this strange sight from a distance and the car began to slow down. I gave some more kicks at the bird to shoo him away, and he stopped advancing, while I retreated further to the other side of the road, being thrown a little off balance by the weight of my backpack. The car slowly approached us and carefully inched down the middle of the road, forming a barricade between me and the bird on either side of the car. As she drove past, the driver appeared both surprised and amused, as I could see that she was laughing, but she also seemed to be alert in case I needed help. I don’T really know if she completely understood what was happening.

The car saved me in a way and as it moved past, I used the opportunity to get away and skedaddled up the road. After a minute, I looked behind to see if the bird was still following me – He was not. He had finally stopped, the car having deterred him, but he was still standing on his side of the road, looking dejected. I continued walking and once I had gotten a long way ahead, I looked back again – He was now a small silhouette in the distance, and he still seemed to be looking at me. I continued on and finally, at a downhill turn in the road, when I had reached the farthest point at which I would still be able to see the spot where that pheasant was, I took one final look back. He was still standing there in that same spot and he still appeared to be looking on in my direction. What an odd, needy bird. It seemed a bit sad but, as I was in a foreign country, there was nothing I could do for him.

I resumed my hike to the next hostel, taking up again my enjoyment of the beautiful scenery in this part of the country. To this day, many years later, I still have no idea what that was all about. I have to say, I don’T know much about this species. Perhaps there was food in my backpack; I can’T recall. The few people that I have told this story to have all gotten a good laugh out of it. The thought of my being chased by a bird must have given them comical imaginations. It wasn’T so funny at the time, but when I look back on it, I can chuckle about it. It was a strange but memorable experience, and it contributed to the many adventures I had during this backpacking trip in Ireland, one of my most favorite summer vacations.
bourkebabeJul 27 20 - 15:48 Loved watching the fireworks on the shores of Lake Michigan while camping when the kiddos in our family were little.
Member313143341107Jul 27 20 - 14:09 Camping in state parks with family. Fishing and enjoying the camp fires and playing games at night.

dthrumcJul 27 20 - 10:54 My summer vacation has been learning how to be a care giver to my mom who now has Dementia. Every day we spend together is quite an adventure. It is quite startling to become the adult with a parent. Thankfully I am learning lots about being more patient and compassionate to someone I love dearly.
janae50Jul 27 20 - 09:55 I grew up on a farm and I always looked forward to going to the "Big City" to visit my Big sister! Fun Times!

Member727087763222Jul 26 20 - 21:49 I loved the time when I went to Disney land with my family and spent a few days exploring that sad part of the trip was that we didn't have cooler and it would've been nice to have a cold drink from our own cooler on a hot day.

ejp10mdJul 26 20 - 18:18 My favorite summer trip was to qatar almost 20 years ago. It was quite a bargain and after arriving in Doha I found out why. It was probably around 130 degrees Fahrenheit in the shade. Still, a neat trip!
Member325397867402Jul 26 20 - 14:35 We go every year to the lake with family. The food is always awesome, the kids get to swim in the pool, and we ride around the campground in the golf cart.

Suzy69Jul 26 20 - 08:06 Las Vegas for the first time I was blown away! I try to go every year now but this year is a bust. Hopefully I will be back next year 🙏
Shegolfs2Jul 26 20 - 08:06 We took our kids to Atlantis-Paradise Island and fell in love with the place! The water park is amazing, but there are also private beaches to snorkel and swim (the water is oh so warm!) And aquariums, lazy rivers and not so lazy rivers! We rented a condo there, which included wrist bands daily to go to Atlantis. Tip: the restaurants are a bit pricy, so pack some sturdy packable foods like bagels, powdered milk, pasta, etc...! Trip of a lifetime, with a little help from the money 'earned' from TopCashback.Com!

sandyyJul 25 20 - 13:39 My dad was a workaholic my entire childhood trying to support his young family. During the summer, he would take one day off his 7 day work week and bring us kids to the beach so we would have a chance to have fun, experience the beach and spend time as a family. Those are far and few between now, but still one of the best memories of my past summers.

TryptamindsJul 25 20 - 03:56 My favorite memory is driving as high elevation as we could when we got to Colorado. We camped in the most mystical place right next to a rushing river and no one else around. We I woke up the next morning, I walked around exploring this profound place and right there about 15 ft away was a full grown male moose! It was my first time seeing a moose! He turned and looked at me to as fog left his nose with a strong exhale as he seen me. It was such a magical moment for me with the moose. He knew I wasn't there to hurt him and I knew he wasn't there to hurt me and as I admired him,he observed me and then we went our separate ways. I will never forget that memory!! It makes me smile till this day!

mommaJul 24 20 - 13:03 Have you ever been in a hoopty.Driving along Michigan avenue.Hoping you dont run out of gas.Dreading the red light.Sitting there reving your fablous 4 cylinger engine.Praying your car doesnt shut off, again.Wiping your forhead for the hundreath time.Sweating.Because your air condtioner went out& You cant afford to get it fixed, but at the end of the day.Your blessed to have a car.That's paid for.Thats yours.That gets you from point a to point b.You go home.Kick of your shoes.Plop down on your couch.After a long day of work.In your grandmas basement, but realize.You'll get a place of your own.One day.Thankful for the breath you take each.Then you brush your teeth.Get into your cozy jammies& Crawl into bed.Fall into a peaceful deep sleep.And start the next day.Still feeling blessed.

TCBMEMBER54Jul 24 20 - 12:24 Ever been to a place of ancient enchantment? Strata that tell a story of an age of giant mammals, lush and verdent vegetation, and a tropical climate long past? Ever taken a trip underground into structures built during the Cold War era of last century? Or an immense cavern filled with fantastic karstic features reminiscent of a fairy tale? Have you ever gazed upon the gigantic busts of four iconic American Presidents in granite? Look no further than South Dakota's Badlands National Park, Minuteman Missile Silo National Historic Site, Wind Cave National Park, and Mount Rushmore! I visited the area in the late summer of 2015 (i also ventured to Wyoming to Devil's Tower). One of my most favorite excursions.

Member117857308022Jul 23 20 - 04:06 A great summer vacation memory is an Alaska land tour and cruise. We flew from Miami to Anchorage, rented a car and drove to Denali, Fairbanks and back to Anchorage staying at interesting lodges along the way. We stopped at a unique trading post for gas. Driving for hours you would see no other cars on the road just bear, caribou and moose. It is truly the last frontier. We then cruised from Seward to Vancouver on a Princess ship.
BrusrGrlJul 23 20 - 03:05 Best summer vaca was going out to see my dad in San Diego when I was about 10 yrs old. They were holding the sand castle competitions at pacific beach. So many different sculptures built! All truly amazing. And I got to share it with my dad =)

Member26036997238Jul 22 20 - 18:53 My favorite summer memory is going to the beach in North Carolina with my kids. We stayed in a house right on the ocean. There was a pool in the back yard. It was cool at night to listen to the waves crash in. And to see all the stars was incredible.
Member97145211622Jul 22 20 - 18:50 My fav memory was flying to Vegas with my 4 kiddos by myself to see my folks. My kids had so much fun in the town I grew up in, and it was the last time I saw my dad, rip. Great memories ❤

sejinshopperJul 22 20 - 17:48 Sharing my happiest summer vacation memory with my wife and her mother in Catalina Island in California.
My wife was a gymnast in her high school and college so she's good at most sports especially in water sports.
Since i've been almost dead in the water when I was a child, i've been so scared of being in water, never tried to do it until I met my wife. She encouraged me so many times and we traveled to Santa Catalina Island to have snorkeling.
I had to hold my wife's hand in the water for over an hour but she never gave up and finally I could swim myself with life jacket. Yep I know it may be funny but it was a big jump to me. The memory of being myself in the water watching sea lives was never forgettable.
moomoo1771Jul 22 20 - 17:43 The beach for my daughter's birthday a few years ago, so many memories made!
3threebeanJul 22 20 - 17:31 My favorite summer vacation memory is when we drove from fl to id. We packed up the car and kids and hit the road, stopping in the Badlands, at Mount Rushmore, and Crazy Horse. We made it in only 2 days by sharing driving responsibilities but got to spend an entire month there with family before heading home. It was the trip of a lifetime!!!

pikappaphiEE252Jul 22 20 - 14:59 Going to Atlantic City as a kid seemed so cool. There was the beach, the pier, the casino, and the boardwalk fires. The area was so lit up at night. And enough taffy to satisfy any kid!
j3nny29Jul 22 20 - 14:58 My parents owned their own business and worked 6 days a week so we could never go on the "traditional" vacations. So for summer vacation after work on saturday, we'd get in the car and drive to a camping ground...Pitch our tent, cook out and just spend time together. I miss those days!

Vkrbrett040712Jul 22 20 - 14:23 Favorite vacation memory for me was when I was little I went to Nashville and went on the steamboat the General Jackson. I dont know who the little girl was but she was my age around 10 and had an amazing voice and was singing on the boat. I will never forget that. The steamboat was so big and on the deck she had a little band and was singing song after song. I wish I knew if she made it big. Her voice was beautiful.

Paladin_Jul 22 20 - 13:35 My grandma used to take us to Disneyland, and my brother and I used to make her hysterical jumping on the beds in the hotel. We thought it was so funny! (-;
RockDocJul 22 20 - 13:01 Summers in Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks with family while growing up! We always stayed in a cabin at General Grant Grove. It was made better by the fact that my mother also went there every year growing up, and stayed in those same cabins!
adensgirlJul 22 20 - 12:09 Stayed in Panama City Beach with my fiance, best friend, & The love of her life. We had the most awesome time & Really enjoyed ourselves!

Little did we know that would be his first & Last vacation because he passed away 6 months later 😢

ItalianstudJul 22 20 - 10:48 What is my phone number of old vacation moments would be when I had the opportunity to go and visit Cancun back when I was about 11 or 12 years old. I went with my my sister and her husband along with their two boys, we got to stay on the resort oh, and the resort was called Playa Del Carmen. My name is also Carmen so I found that what up odd coincidence. Anyways, it was an all-inclusive resort we got to eat whenever we want as much as we want, drink when we want as much as we want (unfortunately I was underage so I wasn't able to drink alcoholic beverages) but none the less it was probably the most fun i've ever had. Remember when we first got there we've got to take a golf cart like cab to our room on the resort and they was crabs running all over the ground the beach was so white, pure, and soft while the ocean was a crisp blue with the intense rays from the sun reflecting off the sandy beach. Probably hands down the best vacation I have been on.
Member324932552406Jul 22 20 - 10:39 Going up north to Duluth area with my parents. All of the parks we visited and local ice cream shops! Especially visiting split rock light house. Carrying on the tradition of those trips with my son!

BiolaJul 22 20 - 09:53 One of the best vacations I had was road tripping with my friends for two weeks through the western part of the us. We crossed 4 states and drove countless miles. We visited places like the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, and Antelope Canyons where we took spectacular photos. If this blog post allowed for photos i'd share one. We could've definitely used an Igloo cooler for all our drinks so if I win this it'll be another excuse to plan another road trip to use it!

ChuffJul 22 20 - 09:04 It was my all-time favorite vacation ever! Right after my son graduated from high school, My mom,my husband,both our kids all took a 10 day trip to Disney world in Florida,we stage 6 days in Florida then we left and went to pigeon forge Tennessee where are we seeing several shows and did a lot of sight seeing! I truly love Tennessee if I was to ever move out of Ohio it would be to Tennessee! We chose this time to do it because with my son graduating this year and then my daughter a year after that we all figured this would be the best chance at getting everybody to be able to go together for the whole trip? So many memories so many awesome fun memories!

bg001Jul 22 20 - 08:06 One of my best summer vacation of memories had to be when I was twelve. My parents, little sister, and I flew to Germany to stay and visit with family. First of all, we flew on Lufthansa which was wonderful in itself. The crew was awesome both coming and going. Then to be able to stay at my aunt and uncle's apartment home over his shop? Sheer bliss! This trip was the first time I was able to actually meet a lot of my mother's remaining family. The culture, the friendliness, and the different opportunities to live as they did was eye-opening. The day trips we took were great, along with a few days at a hostel in the Black Forest. This is awesome to remember this summer trip. It's bittersweet and nostalgic, but beautiful to remember now since my folks, aunts and uncles are all gone. We had such a wonderful time.

Member821023463326Jul 22 20 - 07:00 Favorite summer vacation memory is when my husband, aunt, mom, son and I went to Key West then a cruise through Panama Canal and sailed back to San Francisco. We experienced the famous Mallory Square sunsets, took pictures at the Southernmost Point of the Continental us, saw Ernest Hemingway's home and Duval St. Of course we didn't miss the Key lime pie! We had several ports along the way we stopped and explored. It was our last big vacation together. Since then my aunt and husband passed away. Missing them, i'll treasure all the memories forever.

LiljuleJul 21 20 - 12:58 In August 2019, I boarded a plane for the first time in about 20 years and flew to Rapid City, sd for the Sturgis motorcycle rally. My boyfriend towed his camper and bike to Sturgis from Florida, so he met me at the airport. We rode to Deadwood, the Badlands, the Crazy Horse memorial - it was all amazing. The high point of the trip was our ride to Devil's Tower. I will never forget the sight as we came around a bend in the road and saw the tower rising from the plains, miles away. It was awe-inspiring, surreal and spiritual, as well.

island writerJul 21 20 - 12:36 Some of my favorite memories of summer vacations were the summers that we camped up at Lost Lake on Mt. Hood in Oregon when I was young. Back then the campsites were right by the water, and we'd rent a rowboat for the week and spend hours rowing around the lake. We always cooked over a camp fire, and slept out under the stars at night. I must say though, that I never made it through a week without at least one badly stubbed toe because of running in my flip-flops!
Member418889017910Jul 21 20 - 12:33 My favorite summertime memory is the first time my husband and I took our son to Walt Disney World. We both love anything Disney!

It was amazing seeing his reaction to the characters, rides, and sites! We were there 7 days, so we were able to do a lot. We made so many memories and just enjoyed being a family! It was my best summer vacation ever.

I brought along a friend and one night in the tent, we had a tv/Dvd player playing Godzilla. We blasted the sound when Godzilla would roar and had quite a few people come to our tent asking what's going on as it had scared some folks from afar. Who wouldn't be a little frightened from Godzilla out in nature in the dark?

annguardinoJul 21 20 - 08:47 My favorite memory is bittersweet...I had been caring fully for my father his name was Steve maybe about 7 years he had 3 heart attack and a few strokes. He was my hero he helped me financial because I was a single mother ...So I took care of him while he paid for everything and also paying for me to get my degree in wildlife/Forestry conservation. Anyway he was getting bad off and he wanted to take a trip to the mountains ..Which we did just me and him we had stayed a whole week and seen all kinds of things caves...Anything we can do and see with a wheelchair. ...Well after a picnic he asked me to push him where he can view some mountains ..And he peacefully died there ...I took it as a blessing cause he got to do what he wanted and I made it happen.I love ans miss him dearly..😇😇

Mecombrink77 Jul 21 20 - 08:34 My favorite memory is from my childhood. One year we had won tickets to Disney in Florida. We had such a good time that week. We went to the space center an aquarium and just enjoyed ourselves. We spent a lot of time on the beach at times just our family. My favorite part was our trip to Disney. We went to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and several others. I think my favorite was the haunted Mansion. It was awesome to see the dancing ghosts and at one point the ride seat things turned facing a mirror that made it look like a ghost was sitting with us. In the beginning when we tried to close the bar to our seat the voice that talked to us in the room we began in says don't pull on the bar I will close it for you or something similar. It was a great vacation.

Member620266124115Jul 21 20 - 07:24 I grew up near the ocean, but now am several hours inland and I miss it! It's been 10 years since i've even seen the sea. Wow. And that was a winter vacation. My last summer vacation was 2009, when I took a road trip through Canada and some northern us states with an old boyfriend. Beautiful trip, annoying companion. Lol We had to stop and turn back just before we reached Yellowstone because he realized we just barely had enough time left for him to return to work on time. Still haven't seen Yellowstone!

My kids have been out of school for months and i've been juggling them and work without much help. Throw in the cool cooler to take kayaking one weekend and we would all be excited :)
AcermanJul 21 20 - 07:09 The only time I went on vacation was in the late 80's. I went to Las Vegas for a week. The mgm was just starting to be built at that time, I haven't gone anywhere since then.

SilentJJJul 21 20 - 03:48 Last summer would mark the last time our family would take a family vacation together before my eldest son would graduate and start his six years in the Air Force. We tried to cram as much as we could into the limited time we had. Starting in Glen Rose, Texas we visited Dinosaur World as a throwback to my oldest son’S childhood when he went as a Boy Scout and as something new for my youngest son to enjoy. That afternoon we shot over to Legoland in Dallas and finished off the day with a trip to Rainforest Café. Over the following few days, we managed to visit the Ft. Worth Zoo, visit the Alamo down in San Antonio, and toured the Battleship Texas and the Texas Monument in La Porte. I’M glad we did so much last year since it seems summer 2020 vacations will be put on hold for most people this year.

scopectJul 21 20 - 03:16 My favorite summer vacation was the first time we went to Topsail Island in North Carolina. I expected it to be mucch more "touristy;" and built up. Instead it was a sleepy little island with a focus on relaxation and beachtime. We walked every where - to the beach, to church, to the shops, etc. Had a sweet time we wished did not have to end.

FrenchToastJul 20 20 - 21:43 For awhile as a child I was taken on camping trips with friends. We all went in a large, quite nice trailer with indoor plumbing, stove, refrigerator, etc. The girls, who were the minority on these trips, slept inside the trailer with mum. The boys roughed it outside in sleeping bags with dad. We went to camp grounds like Money Hill, which I am unsure still exists, but I recall it was beautiful, and we learnt a lot about wildlife.
We also went to Grand Isle where we used to float along the Gulf in huge truck inner tubes. I recall the last time we were there was shortly after Jaws (the original) was released at cinema, so sharks were on all of our minds. One day whilst I and a friend, Claire, were happily floating along in the water, suddenly something from beneath the water grabbed my feet and pulled me under! It was friend Terrence and a couple of the other boys who had conspired to frighten Claire and I out of our wits! They succeeded! Dad was not too happy about it once we reported back, though, so the boys were denied dessert that night and no marshmallows around the campfire, either! Well, they survived..... (Lol)
In those days, the days were long, adventurous, hot, salty, and fun. Exploring and learning about the wildlife around us was a huge thrill. It was a time to let our creative tendencies bloom, too. I wrote poetry beneath tall pine trees and dreamt of what life would be like 25 or more years into the future. Those were happy, carefree days that I shall always make me smile and fill me with warmth. Everyone should have days like those.

We made a lot of good memories and it started a tradition that every two years we go to the beach for our family reunions. The best part is introducing the kids and grandkids to the ocean, sand, shells and sea life. I loved that we finally got an updated family photo on the beach.

Something I would love to do again with him :).

JoshuaLJul 20 20 - 17:48 The most memorable summer vacation in the us was the road trip to San Antonio for the first time with the whole family more than a decade ago. A trip with the whole family is basically impossible now that all us kids are forming our own families. This was also the first road trip for my family in the us. Only looking back years later did I realize why family road trips had been a beloved American tradition and experience. The Alamo, Riverwalk, tower of America, and all the local food will never be forgotten as they transformed us into true Americans. It's funny how memories flood your mind with each frame full of vivid images and lively emotions. Our family had been back to San Antonio with different members since then, but it is interesting that we all felt that nothing was the same as the first time. It was simply special in every way and perhaps a little magical is how we'll always remember it.

Jul 20 20 - 17:32 Can’T say there is any memorable summer vacation I can recall.

What I do remember, however, was as a kid how summer itself was a vacation, and I loved going to the local swimming pools to frolic and use the diving boards.

Member128143303218Jul 20 20 - 17:31 When I was a single mom and my kids were little (4 and 6), I was unable financially to take my kids on a vacation after leaving an abusive marriage. I won a trip to Disneyland for four days for all of us, which I would not have been able to afford. Then, when I turned 50, after raising my kids alone, then caring for my aging parents, my daughter took me on an all-expenses paid vacation up the California coast, staying on the beach in Cambria, for my birthday. Those are my two favorite vacations. So grateful for those memories.

FrenchToastJul 20 20 - 16:52 For awhile as a child I was taken on camping trips with friends. We all went in a large, quite nice trailer with indoor plumbing, stove, refrigerator, etc. The girls, who were the minority on these trips, slept inside the trailer with mum. The boys roughed it outside in sleeping bags with dad. We went to camp grounds like Money Hill, which I am unsure still exists, but I recall it was beautiful, and we learnt a lot about wildlife.

We also went to Grand Isle where we used to float along the Gulf in huge truck inner tubes. I recall the last time we were there was shortly after Jaws (the original) was released at cinema, so sharks were on all of our minds. One day whilst I and a friend, Claire, were happily floating along in the water, suddenly something from beneath the water grabbed my feet and pulled me under! It was friend Terrence and a couple of the other boys who had conspired to frighten Claire and I out of our wits! They succeeded! Dad was not too happy about it once we reported back, though, so the boys were denied dessert that night and no marshmallows around the campfire, either! Well, they survived..... (Lol)

In those days, the days were long, adventurous, hot, salty, and fun. Exploring and learning about the wildlife around us was a huge thrill. It was a time to let our creative tendencies bloom, too. I wrote poetry beneath tall pine trees and dreamt of what life would be like 25 or more years into the future. Those were happy, carefree days that I shall always make me smile and fill me with warmth. Everyone should have days like those.
flyhigh8Jul 20 20 - 16:51 My favorite summer vacation memory was a family trip to Hawaii. We visited two islands, Maui and Oahu and had a great time on both islands. We drove Road to Hana and hiked Pipiwai Trail, watched the stunning sunrise at Haleakalā National Park in Maui. We went kayaking and hiked Diamond Head for a great view of Honolulu in Oahu. Of course, we went snorkeling on both islands (saw fishes and turtles!) Last but not least, simply lying on the beach was relaxing and the food was delicious!

But, looking back, it was the best summer of my life.

I do go on summer trips but they're way closer to home than they used to be so by now, every moment I had on those trips is a favorite summer memory.

TheInsuranceDanJul 20 20 - 13:30 Our 18 year old daughter chose to stay on campus over the summer and started working for a grocery delivery service. On one of her deliveries, she found a small, state park that none of us had heard of. So, last week she took my wife and I to said park for the day. We hiked the trails and read all of the informational placards in the park. It was very nice to get to spend the day reconnecting with our university girl!
sksJul 20 20 - 13:05 It's about 15 years ago when we traveled to a beautiful lake far far away, most of the time we went for fishing on a boat. That's the most peaceful and wonderful summer I could remember.
Member1015793725014Jul 20 20 - 12:58 It was the first time I had ever been on a plane by myself. I was having a hard time at home. My brother invited me to spend some time in California with him before he got married, with one caveat: i’D have to show myself around since he would be busy with wedding planning.

It took some time to get my bearings. Then one day, while driving I switched the gps to only take local roads. Best decision ever. It was amazing to drive around and spent my summer exploring California.

A week later I hopped on a 9 hour bus to San Francisco. I had no plans, for lost more times than I could count. It was all worth it when I finally made it to the Golden Gate Bridge.

And then renting a car and driving down the Big Sur. It was just all so beautiful. The coastline, the wind, the mountains. The fruit stands and shops along the road. The lighthouses. The sunsets.

I never thought I was a summer person until I spent it somewhere else.

LuvSavingMoneyJul 20 20 - 12:40 We had booked our vacation to Topsail Island back in January. We were unsure if we were going to be able to go with everything going on but we were able to. I tried paddleboarding for the first time with my middle son. Great bonding time and awesome experience.
LPottsJul 20 20 - 12:24 Last summer we flew to Rome and stayed for 3 nights, visiting all of the incredible sights to see. From there we took a train to Venice where we boarded a cruise ship which took us down the Adriatic. We stopped in Montenegro, Corfu, Kefalonia, Santorini and Croatia. We had wonderful excursions at each of these destinations. Once back in Venice, we stayed for 3 nights in a 5 star hotel right on the Grand Canal and toured all of Venice! This was truly a trop of a lifetime!

searchy4Jul 20 20 - 07:10 My favorite summer family vacation memory is when I went camping on the lake with my hubby of 25 year and his family.Wr had 2 kids and my.Hubbies sister had 5 kids and all the girl were around the same age so it was fun building those memories. Now due to a bad back surgery the surgeon paralyzed me and it is too hard to go on a lake in a wheelchair so you never know what happens in life that changes so always live in the moment and make memories while your health is advice I give everyone now.Stay safe everyone

Decolace1920Jul 19 20 - 06:46 Key West Florida waa so relaxing, so beautiful. The culture there is entertaining in and of itself. So much to see and do or just relax. There is a bakery there that sells cookies as big as dinner plates, and so many nice restaurants. We so enjoyed the aquarium. Plus going up in an air glider off the back of a boat to take in a bird's eye view was breath taking. If you can, definately fit in a scuba diving experience. You won't be disappointed!
Jessica KoehlerJul 19 20 - 06:17 Going camping with my hubby, kid and in laws. My kid learned how to swim, ride a bike, chop wood, about nature and how to enjoy the world and it's beautiful nature. We went for hikes (being asthmatic, not easy), we took and went on the 4 wheelers. Cooked so many different meals together, we had Smores and watched the stars. Nothing better than taking a 4 hour drive to find a piece of mind in the crazy world we are in right now. I'm still carrying around an old cooler from the 80s, good ol Coleman. This would be a blessing, and I can not wait to go back for quality family time.

But on our way home I was actually in a hurry to get back home as my sister here in Indiana had called there was a serious emergency back home. So we got packed up and ready and headed back home. Well I was doing about 85 or so threw the mountains trying to get back home faster. My husband looks at me and says hey babe I said yeah he said well I thought I would tell you now but a few minutes ago back there you passed a smokey boy but I knew if I told you at the time you would punch the break or something and make it look worse lol God love his soul.

Teaching them about fishing, and the different bugs, going to the wildlife center in the park to see the wildlife so they can learn about them. Then of course enjoying the campfire with the nightly s'mores.

tomandlynneshowJul 18 20 - 12:13 Summer .... No school, evenings playing outside until the street lights come on and sleeping with windows open to the sounds of wildlife ... The simple joys of a distant childhood .
Royce627Jul 18 20 - 12:10 My favorite summer vacation is back when we didn't need funerals for our family to gather together. A time when I didn't have so many worries or stress and we should visit my cousins in port Arthur, make our way down to Galveston take a ride on the ferry and spend some time on the beach. I want to be able to give my kids donde kind of memories, the kind full of fun and wonder and not of fear and stress. I miss those summer days.
suzannekaneJul 18 20 - 11:57 When the kids were little, and as a single mom, I wanted to take them someplace really memorable for summer vacation. After looking at dozens of options, I chose the island of Martinique. We booked at an all-inclusive resort (breaking my budget, but well worth it for the incredible memories of the trip) and spent 2 weeks there. The kids learned how to snorkel and play various games (badminton, horseshoes), rode horses, and we explored the island with a rental car. The best part for the kids had to be the pop beads everyone wore that could be exchanged for different items. They were like cash, and so colorful.

Other resort guests loved that my kids were so personable and eager to participate in water sports, play games, socialize with other kids and they offered to babysit them so I could have a bit of time to myself.

One of the best times for me that the kids talk about to this day is the celebrations of Fourth of July and Bastille Day (July 14). The island had parades, fireworks, all sorts of costumes and plays depicting Bastille Day. What a great trip!

reedandlaylaJul 18 20 - 07:36 Honestly, my favorite moments in life are hanging out at home in our backyard with The Hubs and our four babies: Ryan 16, Ryder 14, Reed 10, Layla 8. I am completely aware just how totally corny it sounds but, as I was wracking my brain for this entry these memories give me the biggest warmest fuzzies. There is nothing better that sitting in my own grass watching my family enjoy time with eachother at our home ..No outside distractions or duplications. It is pure bliss♡
...Even before time stood still n we have to vacay at home to quarantine...

WackymomJul 18 20 - 06:41 I used to take my oldest son to nj between the wild safari and the beach. At the safari we had a bear on my car where a guy had to come get the bear off😂 Same trip we saw emus peck a persons sunroof out because they didn’T listen to don’T feed the animals.
NixMaksMamaJul 18 20 - 06:32 My best summertime memory is taking my oldest son to the beach. It was June and very hot. He had never touched sand before and he was so amazed by it. My husband and I held both of his hands so he could jump the waves in the ocean. Now he loves any water and you can't get him out even when his fingers are so wrinkly from being in so long. He lives for the ocean, pools or even the shower. I tell him he could be a fish, he loves the water so much.
natsnJul 18 20 - 06:14 I loved going to Boston last year. I stayed with three friends and we spent a whole week visiting different places around the city, traveling to other cities in ma, and eating lots of different foods.
gators8891Jul 18 20 - 06:09 Growing up in Florida & Then tn, I have so many wonderful memories, but I must say nothing tops the summer memories we are starting with our kids.. A 4 year old & A 9 month old. My 4 year old is a daddy's girl, she loves going fishing and canoeing with me, most days she catches more fish than I do!
Lemonhead13201Jul 18 20 - 05:24 My favorite summer vacation was Lake of the Ozarks. Swimming, Go Karting, Sightseeing, Fishing, Shopping and Relaxing in a gorgeous condo with my family. Great memories!!
Member815124603832Jul 18 20 - 05:16 My favorite summer memory was camping with my parents as a young child. Dad would take us out in the boat and fish and it was so peaceful and relaxing.
mmaccomJul 18 20 - 04:04 My favorite summer memory was going to our vacation house in the cape and spending 2 weeks just doing family stuff. Tandem biking, beach, some naps in the hammock.

SooniiaJul 18 20 - 00:12 My favorite summer memory was a few years back when most of my family got together for a cookout in celebration of my grandma, she turned 82. We all ate, laughed and reminisced it was awesome. Later that year my last living grandparent passed away that is why it’S a very memorable and a cherished summer for me.
wubuluJul 17 20 - 23:32 My favorite summer memory is one when I traveled overseas with my family to Thailand to experience the culture and the good food there. Under the beautiful weather and pristine beaches. Every moment was great!

Alexandra1Jul 17 20 - 22:12 My best summer was in 2010. It was my very first vacation and I went away to St. Croix with my family. It was amazing we went on a boat plane, tons of beaches, the malls, tours. We did it all. It was a first of many things for me.
djbatesJul 17 20 - 21:48 As a new resident to south Florida, last week was my first experience in the calm Atlantic Ocean. It was the clearest water i’Ve ever seen. My soul fell in love. By far my favorite memory of the beach, it’S was truly breathtaking to feel so free and connected to the sea.

fifi43Jul 17 20 - 20:28 Going to visit my aunt in Indiana.
tony15Jul 17 20 - 20:27 ..At the boardwalk next to the beach, I found a souvenir item and it made me think of the only girl I Iove. I was a young teen at the time, and yes I was broke. But I was determined to buy the item, and I did; the joy I felt when she liked it.
..She got away. The closest i've been to a beach since is when i'm close by a tv that is showing scenes and pictures of the beach.

achruscielJul 17 20 - 19:14 I don't have a favorite vacation. My daughter & I never traveled far but instead did fun activities close to home. I loved taking her to her first concert, riding going carts, going to a county fair or just going to visit family.

Now I love doing fun things with my grandchildren.
KristineADJul 17 20 - 19:02 My favorite summer vacation memory was being away from all the day to day stress and getting to show my kids mountains.

AGDGJul 17 20 - 18:34 Some years back, I won a sweepstakes & The prize was a trip to Altantis, (Paradise Island, Bahamas). That place was absolutely a m a z I n g ! There were open air ray tanks all around, floor to ceiling aquariums, (i found the the jellyfish to be particularly infatuating) & A huge temple that you climb up to go down the water slide through the shark tank. Woo hoo! What a trip. The place has tons of things to do & The food was incredible, too. That was my most memorable summer vacation & I hope that I can go back some day!

FrittscargoJul 17 20 - 18:24 My most memorable and favorite vacation was a trip to Pismo Beach, Ca with 3 of my friends. We had 3 flat tires on that trip spent most of our money fixing or getting new ones, but it was so much fun. Everything that could go wrong on that trip from the tires to the hotel room did yet we had a blast!

dionneJul 17 20 - 14:42 My favorite summer vacation was many years ago in my childhood. It was a simple, no frills, week long stay at a small cabin on the lake up north with family & Friends. It was a week spent swimming, fishing & Boating on the lake, all of us kids would explore the woods picking wild raspberries while the adults seemed to always be cooking great food on the bbq, we would end every perfect day sitting around the campfire at night listening & Telling stories. I'll never forget the sunsets on that lake, it was the best way to enjoy the long, lazy days of summer surrounded by family & Friends.

kavitajadavJul 17 20 - 14:14 Two years before, we had best vacation time with my husband and my sister family. Remembering those days!
hntaylor32Jul 17 20 - 14:11 My favorite summer vacation memory was in 2001 when I took my two kids to Disney World. I made this happen by myself with a bargain deal I got for 4 night stay at the Sheraton and 3 day park passes. We went to the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom band Typhoon Lagoon water park. My total for everything was $400! We enjoyed every moment and even the simple stuff like the free shuttle rides to and from hotel, the monorail rides to visit the Disney resorts, the river boat ride to Wilderness resort and Mickey and Minnie's buffet! I remember saying to my kids at that time to remember this trip forever because we may not get this chance again which held true. We sure did have a blast!
