Summer fun creates lasting memories. For me it was the East Coast of the Bay of Plenty where I spent Summer holidays for the first 13 years of my life. We camped at Schoolhouse Bay in Te Kaha. Every year there was a core of campers who were regular visitors to this slice of paradise. Was great to see friends I only ever saw at Christmas. Somehow, there was a mystique surrounding this and created anticipation during the build up to summer of catching up again. Summer fun creates lasting memories.
They seemed like endless summers.
Was here that I met my first real girlfriend, by real I dont mean as opposed to the many imaginary ones, but one that had some meaning. The great thing about lasting memories is they are always positive even if some are destined to remain in the past. Other lasting memories included rides on my boogie board, in those days just a slab of foam that gave you the most horrible stomach rash (what did I say about most lasting memories being positive?) . Thankfully boogie boards have come a long way since then. Wish I had designed rash shirts back then, I would have been a pioneer. Lets not forget Santa. My pressies were always in the old paper kleensaks at the end of my camp stretcher. Santa was always generous. I must have been a good boy for all those years. This summer is a new first for me, now living in Taranaki. Looking froward to some Taranaki summer fun creating lasting memories.
What summer fun creates lasting memories do you have of summers gone? I am sure that whatever you did, it was special times in your life, as they were in mine.
