Hello Penfield people! Last week we shared some great back to school strategies! This week though, we want to remind you that there’s still a whole lot of summer going on. In fact, we’ve come up with a list of adventures you need to take advantage of before the summer ends:
From Life Hack, 3 of our favorites include:
Watch a sunset from an epic location.
Everywhere is within an hour of a great spot to watch a sunset. You may have hills in your area that you can climb where you can watch the sunset over your town. You may live near a beach where you can watch it happen over water. Sunsets are among the most popular computer and cell phone backgrounds ever because they’re absolutely gorgeous. You’ve seen the high resolution photos, but there really is nothing like experiencing the real thing.
(In Rochester,NY, we would like to suggest, Lake Ontario (after an Abbotts Run of course), The Roof at Strathallen, Letchworth and Corn Hill Landing.)
Attend a bonfire.
Bonfires are a lot of fun. You find a friend with a house in the middle of nowhere and build yourself a fire that Running Man would be jealous of. Grab the kids and some s’mores ingredients. Call up that hippie friend we all have that can strum practically every hit from the 70s on an acoustic guitar. Make a party out of it. As humans, we’ve always bonded over fire. Why not be a part of the proud tradition?
(Bonfire sounds huge and like it involves lumber. Keep in mind that fire pits are on clearance right now, or use your portable grill. #noonewilljudge)
Take a nap in a hammock.
Homer Simpson makes taking a nap in a hammock look fun because it is fun. It can be a challenge to find a hammock and find a place to put it up. It’s worth the effort because it’s the next best thing to going camping. You’re sleeping outside with nature and hammocks can be pretty comfortable if you set them up right.
(Putting up the hammock and securing it properly will make you want to take a nap so this will work out nicely, just watch your dismount.)
PopSugar.com also has a list to add for family fun:
Splash in the Sprinkler
Decorate Lunch Bags
Write a letter
Pack a picnic
Yes, it’s time to start thinking about going back to school, but rest assured there’s still more summer fun. We’re here to help you take advantage of every moment. Contact us today for more great ideas, and community and real estate resources.
