Unlike other seasonal transitions, the arrival of Summer is a heralded celebration! Officially, the first day of Summer is June 21st – the longest day of the year! Ask anyone when the first day of Fall, Winter or Spring is and they may be hard pressed to tell you – however almost everyone can name the first day of Summer! Shortly thereafter is the eagerly anticipated last day of school for families, some having counted down from as far as twenty days to the true commencement of Summer holidays! And then it’s long weekend fun for the entire family with Canada Day and Independence Day Celebrations on July 1st and July 4th. It is now time for Summer at the Cottage and freedom – Veranda Beach style!
