My most memorable summer will be this summer. We took a 45 day RV caravan trip through Canada and Alaska. We saw beatiful scenery and many animals like bear, moose, caribu and sheep. We also saw killer and humpback whales. My favorite thing was watching the bears catch and eat salmon in the stream!

My husband and I had the best summer. We took a 7 year old grandaughter to Yellowstone Nat Park and Mount Rushmore area. We had a wonderful time. There is nothing like children to make you feel young!

My most memorable summer was when I was 12 years old and cut my chin open and was forced to stay silent and not talk for 2 weeks so the stitches would heal! It was an odd time, and I could not eat solid food. I think I liked the special treatment too :)

The summer of 1984 was a magical summer because my husband and I married May 12 and spent our first summer as newlyweds. We were poor, as he was working on his Ph.D., and I was working a temp job. We didn't have much money, but we had a lot of love and basked in the magic first summer together enjoying getting to know each other and become a couple.

My most memorable summer was my summer in San Fran. It was a cold summer but it was the great. It was such a health summer with lots of walk, climbing, and eating organic. San Fran has great healthy organic food everywhere which is like no where else I've been. All the lovely hills made it some interesting everywhere and the bay was beyond beautiful.

. My best Summer was spent with all my family and all the family bbqs we had. My father did all the grilling while we were swimming! It didn't matter what we cooked, just being together made it great! Since my kids have grown up, It is harder to get together. And I miss those times

My most memorable summer was the summer I spent with my cousin on her farm. She taught me how to pick,snap,and can green beans. We also canned tomatoes and made fresh salsa! Everything we made that summer was from her garden! I received many family recipes and appreciated the hard work of farmers. I miss sinking my teeth into a fresh, fat, juicy tomato from her garden!

My most memorable summer was the first summer I lived in Oregon. I did a lot of hiking, biking and exploring.

My family had been planning a family reunion at Estes Park, Colorado, for about one year and I was not planning to go, because of all of the doctor bill that I have accumulated. I have just recently lost my job and my health insurance, due to all of my health problems that I have been experiencing the past 2 1/2 years. All of the doctors I have been to have not figured out what is going on with me, but I have been doing some extensive research and I feel that I am gluten intolerant. So, I have learned to eat healthier by eating a gluten-free and whole foods diet. I have just recently discovered the Whole Foods Market on the Internet and have found that there is one located on Main Street in Kansas City, Missouri where I live. Needless to say, while going through my hardships, I decided at the last minute to go along with my family to Estes Park, Colorado. I had a wonderful time in Colorado. The mountains and all of the scenery and the smell of the pine trees were awesome. While in Colorado I noticed that there were a few more Whole Foods Markets than there are in Kansas City. Are you planning on building a new store in the Northland area of Kansas City, Missouri?

The summer I spent in Israel when I was 16 was my most memorable summer. The beaches were gorgeous, the people were wonderful and there was so much to see and do. The food was amazing and the vegetables were so fresh and delicious. That summer broadened my horizons and I made a lot of great friends.

The year I had gotten married and moved to Barcelona, Spain to be with my soon-to-be graduating new husband is incredibly memorable. It was wonderful to walk down the streets all lined beautiful with rich architecture of centuries past. While there, we went on a 10-day cruise for our honeymoon along the coast of Italy as well; visiting Sicily, Monaco, Florence and Malta. The food in all these places was nothing short of amazing. Paella, wine, pasta, and even the ice cream was awesome. The perfect end to this particular summer was finding out we were expecting our first child, Michael.

My most memorable summer was when my family road tripped for 1 1/2 months in our little Toyota Corolla! With 3 of us in the back seat, we basically stuck to each other the whole time from Portland to Florida to New York and back!

I got my beautiful dog Satchemo the summer of 2001 and he has been such a gift. I rescued a spunky mischievous puppy from the pound who grew up to be a great companion and a wonderful dog. Training him that summer was an adventure and a privilege as I watched him grow, explore and learn.

In June of 1979 I turned 27. I was a school teacher home for the summer. In July I participated in the EST training where, over 3 days and two weekends I began a life journey toward self realization, acceptance and intentional thinking. During the graduate courses that followed I met a man, a psychologist, who became my husband. Those were magical times of youth, inspiration -- and consciousness seeking -- floating in isolation tanks -- discovering the world of the transpersonal from Dolphins to Freedom Fighters to Natural Birth and Child Raising. Several life's missions took form that summer. In time I left teaching and became a psychotherapist which has been my career now for 26 years.

My most memorable summer was the first time I went to France with my parents. They wanted to go on a tour around the Loire Valley. I had just graduated from college... We stopped at wineries and other fantastic sites. My parents found another couple who were close to their age and my sister and I ran around each little city exploring together. The tour guide was cute and the food was great.

My most memorable summer is when I meet my best friend. We have been best friends going on 41 years now. We have remained best friends even though we have lived in different states for 37 of those years. We have been through a lot but she is the best friend you could have.

My most memorable summer was earning money to help pay for my Junior year At San Jose State College. Picking strawberries and string beans--all stoop labor.Then night work at the cannery, rotating on the fruit cocktail machine and grape belt. I was the only one who spoke English, but sang along with the others. The floors were always wet, so we stood in large cardboard boxes. When it was time to say goodbye--as the work was ending-we took up a collection and bought a black lace negligee for our section leader. She was so surprised!

This is the summer that my Girl Scout troop learned to cook. We set up a camp kitchen and learned how to attach the propane to our gorgeous campstove before setting the burners alight. Then, that done, we moved into my cool kitchen and practiced cooking camp food as if we were om the great outdoors. We scratch-made bread (ground the wheat, some of which we grew) and baked it in our camp oven, we made vegan chili and nitrate-free bacon wrapped hot dogs (and vegan ones too). We checked labels, talked about nutrition using the omnivore pyramid and the vegan wheel, and cooked and ate ourselves silly. Tonight, after presenting a play about their favorite (women) environmentalists, the girls earned an ecology badge. They are very well informed about their planet and what they can do to preserve it. And how else to celebrate? A feast!! Yay you! Thanks, Martha

Cruising to the North Cape was awesome. We 've been to the Arctic Circle twice within 5 years, as we really enjoyed the serenity of nature in Norway.
