Summer Blog Party II

Welcome back!  We're still here enjoying the beautiful weather and wonderful company.  We're glad you joined us. If you're just joining us, we've got a bunch of authors together for a Summer Blog Party and we're talking about summer and what we love about it.  If you missed the first part of the party, click HERE to see what we've been up to!  And please be sure to check out our other hosts today.  Patricia Bates, Joanne Troppello, Kay Springsteen, and

So, is there some destination you've never been but would love to go on vacation?

  Lots of them, but Ireland and New Zealand in particular.

I think Ireland would be a wonderful place to visit.  My family is from there, so for me, it would be that much better.
Heather:  Greek Isles!!

I don't think I've ever seen a picture of the Greek Isles that didn't look like heaven.  I'm with you, Heather.  I'd love to go to the Greek Isles!

Annette:  Next stop—Germany and Denmark to visit our five kids from other mothers---otherwise known as exchange students.  Sometime in the future Bora Bora and Galapagos Island.

I lived in Germany years ago and the summer was a beautiful time there.  The wine festivals in the Rhineland region I lived in were so much fun.  And Bora Bora and Galapagos Island sound so exotic! 

So back to our own backyards. What do you like to do a bit closer to home in the summer?

There’s something so soothing about the sound of the ocean—and something so bracing about the crisp, salty air. I love it!

Joanne:  I like taking walks. My husband and I sometimes go for walks around our neighborhood in the spring and summer and early fall. I also enjoy hiking.

Anne:  I’ve just returned from a 3-week vacation to visit friends and family, so I’m in the midst of writing my next release. However, I do plan on another short visit out of town, this time to take in a play and visit more friends. Fun times!

My nephew is coming to visit from New York for about six weeks. We plan to take him all over and show him the sights. In between, I'm working on the 2nd draft of my current WIP.

Wend:  I love amusement parks. Especially Disneyland. Love the smells, lights, people, the fun.

Sounds like you have some great things to look forward to.  I'm going on a family vacation to Walt Disney World with my son, a few friends, and their children.  It should be a great time!

Time for more drinks!  Come back later this afternoon for the third part of our Summer Blog Party!  Time to make some Sangria.  :)

Sounds like a fun summer blog party. Aside from books, I get a lot of my inspiration of where to visit from THE AMAZING RACE. I love the show. New Zeland is also on my want to visit list along with Ireland, Swizerland and Russia.

I love the Amazing Race. One of the few reality TV shows that my husband and I watch. It is a great place to get destination ideas. So glad to see you drop by our party today.
