Living in Japan some of what summer evokes is different..and honestly there isnt much about summer I am all that into. Im not a beach guy, Im not a barbeque guy really.. This year I was over in the States for late June and early July and so did a few typical summery things for over.. probably the best was going to a minor league baseball game.
There's something cool about being in a smaller stadium, close to the action..3 dollar vs. 12 dollar drinks.. sun slowly goes down as everyone gets into the sort of corny little activities going on. Really enjoyed that.
So what are you doing that's really the definition of summer for you?
