I am kind of late with this post, considering it is already July, but, are you going or have you gone somewhere already for vacation?  Tanning and sipping from an umbrella drink on a beach?  Camping on the weekends?  Enjoying your own backyard?  Finishing up treatment?  Going to the local swimming pool to cool off?  Planning some summer cookouts with friends or family?  Just staying home and doing whatever you feel like?

We have taken one vacation already.  We flew out West to see my Sister, her husband and family.  We had an awesome time!  I didn't want to leave, but, my husband forced me too.  LOL 

She is suppose to be flying out later this summer, so, I will be seeing her soon again.

This year we've booked a beautiful home right on the Gulf!  We have been here before and loved the house.  Soooooooo looking forward to it!  It's in a gated community and we usually have the beach all to ourselves.  And the food!  Amazing!  Fresh fish daily! 

There is nothing more relaxing than the water, sun, sand and my wonderful hubby by my side!

Noel, if you need anyone else to come along, my husband and I would be honored to join you.  LOL  Sounds great!  We love the gulf coast so much better than the ocean.

Sure!  You are all welcome to join us!  I might check with my hubby though, just to be sure.  LOL 

It's a 4 bedroom house, so, that would leave 3 extra bedrooms!  Wink

We are renting a place on several acres buried in the woods.  It is so peaceful and relaxing!  Just what the doctor ordered!

We have been taking a few little weekend trips away.  There is a town a few hours away that has great shops, great food and the cutest little cottage that we rent.  We always have fun.

My husband and I head out next Tuesday for two weeks for Juneau, AK, to help with a church project up there.  About 11 of us are going to help out.  We like to do things like this and will consider this our vacation.

Amazing to think that a year ago next Tuesday I finished chemo (and then did rads).  What a difference a year makes!

We're Staying home. My husband is retiring soon and we will have many chances to go places.After this past loooong winter all we talked about is going South in the winter.His sisters go to Texas for 5 months but to far for us for that long of a time. Right now We're looking for a bigger truck to pull our camper.

This summer we're fencing in our yard. A six foot fence for our pets and their safekeeping.Also do some remodeling to our house and go to  car shows and concerts.

My hubby booked our cabin again and it can't come soon enough.  It's always so good to get away from everything and just be able to relax, have fun and be with each other.

Susie, now tell us what you're doing.

We just got back from going out East.  We thought it might be cooler out there, but, wrong!  lol  We were on the ocean, so, it actually wasn't so bad.  Had a beautiful beach house and got a nice tan.  And the food, OMG, it was delicious!

Hubby and I will be driving to Montana in a few weeks.  It's a long drive, but, we prefer it to flying as there is much to see on the way.  We got a new SUV which will make it even nicer.

Where are you going Susie?

Love that part of NY.  Although we do not camp, we have spent time in Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Schroon Lake, and Lake George.  One summer we spent a few days up along the St. Lawrence River. 

We just returned from two weeks in Juneau, Alaska.  That, too, is a rather laid-back area.  Although it is the capital of Alaska, it is a rather isolated city.  The only ways in and out are by air or by boat.  We were there to help with a church building project, but we did get to go out to the ocean inlets quite a few times.  We also were out on a small fishing boat for an afternoon/evening.  So beautiful to be out there AND surrounded by mountains all around.

I need to head out to Ohio to visit my elderly parents and will do that some time this month.  School resumes for me the first week of September.

Desertgirl, Alaska always looks so beautiful.  You are lucky that you got to go there.  Did you have any trouble with bears?  It seems so many towns have them coming into town looking for food.

There were black bears quite a few times around the place where we were staying just outside Juneau proper.  They would try to get into the garbage when they thought we were not around.  Once or twice a person in the house would here them and try to scare them off.  One morning last week a small one was in the backyard, scrounging around.  We watched as it came on up on the back porch.  WOW!  The owner's little dog did not want to go out to the backyard after that bear left.

The salmon are now running upstream, and so seeing bears in the residential areas is starting to wind down for the present.  We saw some black bears up around Mendenhall Glacier, up along a stream that had a lot of salmon moving upstream to spawn.  We'd watch the bears jump into the stream to try to grab a salmon.  Around the area we could see the remains of salmon here and there.

Our hosts said that whenever they are out for a walk, not just at night, they feel better if they have a firearm with them for just in case.

It was weird to have to be very aware of the possiblities that bears could show up at about any time.
