Summer Coat

For a couple of years, my extended family would spend a week up in the Adirondack Mountains. Despite the bugs, the creatures, rodents, and dampness, there was one thing that I particularly loved: wearing jackets even though it would be the middle of August.

Maybe it's just me, but I loved that we could take a break from the hot, humid NYC weather and retreat to the chill, comfortable mountains. It was certainly a change of pace, as was being able to wear sweaters and not be ridiculed.

But alas, our vacation destination has travelled 300 miles south of the Adirondacks to the lovely Jersey Shore. Now our week is quite the opposite: hot, fast-paced beach days, hot sand, warm sea, cute lifeguards, and a really bad tan.

Enjoy the rainy days! You'll long for them once the heat returns :P
