  8. I prefer the pool but only because I can't stand the sand. It gets everywhere! I have long hair and it takes me about half a bottle of conditioner to get all that sand out of it. Salt water swimming pools are the best though fresh water is never a bad thing...especially in the heat of summer. You take what you can get then :)

  22. Do you prefer the humid summer heat of the south or the dry heat in the west?

    A few years back we went to Las Vegas for the 4th of July and it was 110 degrees there. Then a month later we took a family trip to WDW where it was only 90, but humid like a sauna. We decided just a few minutes after leaving the airport --- I'll take dry Las Vegas at 100 any day over Florida!!!

  38. I have never been to a totally nude beach, but I have been to beaches in France where tops are optional. It wasn't really a big deal, but being used to the warm Florida gulf water (temperature about 80 degrees year-round) I kept my bathing suit on because the Mediterranean was much colder than I am used to. Actually I don't think I even went in past my knees because it was a bit too chilly, even in the heat of August.

  39. My fave Summer activity is Fishing! I wanted my own boat all my life, and I finally got one a few years ago at age over 40. My Son usually goes with me because my wife never had any interest, but one morning my Son didn't want to wake up and i had already gotten everything ready (ice chests, gassed up the boat and truck, fishing poles, made lunches, etc ) so my wife reluctantly agreed to go with me. Well, it turned out that she is a natural and is really good at fishing! She caught a lot more than i did that day, and she was 'hooked' ! Now she is teh one wanting to go every weekend. which makes me love fishing more than ever. She's my best friend and there is nothing better than being out on a boat fishing with your best friend!

  79. I grew up out West and I lived in the South for a couple years, let me tell you... I will take the dry heat in the West over the Humid heat in the South any day. Right now I live in the Midwest where I get a combination of both and I love it. On the days when it's a little sticky outside, I stay in and suck up some air conditioning or go swimming. Today... it's beautiful and perfect outside. Why am I on this computer????
