5 Things You Should Do This Summer

Welcome Summer 2014!

I know I’m late, but the first day of summer (June 21) slipped right passed me. I was too busy enjoying one of my favorite summer pastimes, eating blue crabs. Summer seems to activate some sort of youthful vigor in me, making me want to do everything under the sun! The northern hemisphere is alive and vibrant with a multitude of activities to partake in, places to visit, and people to see it all with. So, in honor of the summer solstice, I’ve come up with five things you should do during the season:

1. Movie night outdoors: There’s nothing better than a tub of buttery popcorn or a box of Raisinets and fresh air while a movie plays in the midst of nature.

2. Nature scavenger hunt: This activity keeps the whole family busy and you can do this almost anywhere there’s nature.

3. Go on a camping trip: I haven’t been on a camping trip in two years, but I still consider myself an outdoorsy type. Even if you can’t make it to the nearest state park or mountainous area, you can camp out in your own backyard. My favorite part is cooking every meal and a cast iron skillet over a campfire.


4. Take swimming lessons: Unless you’re Michael Phelps then you should take lessons or at least keep from getting rusty. You never know when the backstroke could save your life.

5. Eat a crustacean (ignore if you’re allergic): There’s nothing like a glass of lemonade and a huge pile of well-seasoned blue crabs in front of you while soaking up some vitamin D. If you’re not a fan of blue crabs then try Snow or Alaskan King crab legs. Either way, you can’t go wrong with the summertime treat.
