As you'll see, the tentative plans that I fulfilled during the summer months weren't ambitious. Basically, they can be summed up with one tentative plan: take advantage of summer, already. I owe a lot to the amazing weather (don't be fooled by the toque in the camping photo) and a four day work week (I'm back to five days now, sadly). It also helped that I didn't have any big events looming over me (like, I don't know, a wedding or a trip to Europe).
Here's a sample of my accomplishments:
Go camping. Check.
Make a smore. Check.
Eat as much local produce as possible. Check.
Float on multiple lakes on an inflatable mattress. Check.
Go to the nude beach at Prior Lake. Check. (Lament the fact that Prior Lake is nothing like Wreck Beach. Check.)
Go to the Saanich Fair. Check.
Wear sun block, but spend enough time outside that you also get a tan. Check.
Don't worry about writing about all of these things as they are taking place; there'll be plenty of time come September. Check.
