Summer Rocks

Labor Day is here again, marking the unofficial end of summer. We’ll follow the sun south, all the way to Guatemala if our plans hold, to avoid missing out on warm weather. Something we will miss, though, are summer celebrations.

All across the continent – from the Deep South of the Louisiana Bayou to the Northern reaches of Toronto, Canada, as far west as Rapid City, South Dakota, and everywhere in between – we found large cities and small towns cordoning off a couple blocks of downtown real estate in weekly celebration. It didn’t matter where we were, the festivities all had a familiar feel: street food, beer in plastic cups, bands on stage, and a crush of locals looking to blow off a little steam. Same theme, different venue, always a good time.

So hoist a glass and bid this summer a fond adieu. It’s a long way to Memorial Day.

Have a good weekend everybody!

    It’s an end to summer for some but we also follow the sun south and Mexico is full of festivals and celebrations, so there’s no reason to feel like you will miss them. I am sure Guatemala will have lots too and they will be quite different but with the locals still out there enjoying life. Maybe we will cross paths on your way south. Happy travels and thanks for stopping by.
