@tmsing:  FI is definitely more outdoorsy than I am. We just bought a boat and I am happy to go out in it for a few hours…FI would be happy to be out in it all.freaking.day. We compromise, lol. Other than our boat, we love to have BBQs, go swimming (preferably in a lake or ocean as opposed to a pool), go hiking with furbaby, and just relaxing!

@tmsing:  I hate the summer, I hate the heat and I hate being sweaty…I am a fall and winter person, all the way…once the first frost hits, you can’t keep me in the house, we’re at pumpkin patches, on sleigh rides, at ice rinks and having harvest parties with our friends around roaring fires drinking grog….so until that happens, I’ll be in my office or in my house….I hate the summer

Going to the beach is my favorite. It’s been way too long since I actually went.

Going to the beach is our first favorite summer activity. 

Grilling outdoors and lounging around our backyard.  There are lots of wind chimes in the trees, a small fountain, a picnic table, a swing and a fire pit.  That swing is one of my favorite places in the world.

Going to our favorite bar downtown – lots of outdoor seating – in the summer they keep the doors open and we can hear the bands.

@lolot:  I forgot mountain biking! That is fun too.

@Nona99:  I hate summer too, for all of the reasons you said. But it lasts so long here that I have to deal with it or else become a recluse. I don’t think FI would sign up for that, lol.

@tmsing:  It’s Colorado….winter lasts from November to April around here and I love every minute of it!  We’ve got a great group of friends who love the cold weather, we go to the ice races, we head up to the high country for weekends at snowy cabins and hot tub in a blizzard….It’s a great time!

@mrs_pudding_pop:  +1 to day drinking on a patio!  Or backyard, or beach, or wherever 😉  Stupid wedding diet is getting in the way of my day drinking.

@Nona99:  I also hate the summer! Everyone thinks I’m weird. I hate sunscreen, heat, mosquitoes, etc. Fall is my favorite. 

On a nice cool summer day we will go hiking in the mountains that are only an hour away from us.
