Ahh the long, hot, days of summer! Everyone is out and about on vacation, off to exotic parks, beaches, lakes, mountains and more. Last summer the wife and I took a 25th Wedding Anniversary to Italy on a Rick Steve’s tour that hit Rome, Lucca, Cinque Terra, Florence and Volterra. It was magical except for perhaps that night we drank a bit too much wine and Limoncello. That stuff is a bit hard on the stomach if you have too much!
Limoncello (Italian pronunciation: [limonˈtʃɛlːo]) is an Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the coast of Amalfi, and islands of Procida, Ischia, and Capri. It is also produced in Abruzzo, Basilicata, Apulia, Sicily, Sardinia, Menton in France, and the Maltese island of Gozo. In northern Italy, the liqueur is often referred to instead as limoncino.
Summer is for traveling, exploring, swimming, surfing and camping! Summertime is full of goodtimes, backyard bbqs, a cooler full of ice cold brews and visiting friends. Summer is the stuff of dreams. When adults sit at their desks, and children sit in school, they dream of summer. Summer is the time of infinite fun. The day seems to last forever, and the fun never stops. It is a time of romance, excitement and an enhanced enjoyment of life. Somehow summer never seems to last long enough. It is always over before we get a chance to fully experience its power. This is true of all things wonderful. They always seem too short.

Longer days and shorter nights,
Darker shades and brighter lights.
Louder music and wilder friends,
No need for pencils, no need for pens!
The parties are turned up,
The grills are burnt up,
The drinks are getting drunk up,
Everybody is pumped up!
Make these days the time of your life,
And make the nights just as right.
This time only comes once a year,
So live it up, don’t have any fears.
Everybody’s happy, and the girls are fine,
You already know it’s summertime!
Summer Time Photographs and Artwork
The following photographs and artwork illustrate the theme of summer – at least for me! Consider purchasing a bright fun summer time photograph as an art print, framed or matted piece, canvas, metal print or on a product such as a weekender tote bag and think of summer all year long!
