Memorial Day! The “unofficial” beginning to the summer months! This is the day the pool opens. Gone are the worries that wearing white pants are judged. This weekend kicks off friendly Pennsylvanian neighbor lawn wars too.
Memorial Day weekend has always been one of my favorite long weekends of the year to look forward to. Not only because it gives me time to reflect on our past and current heroes, but because I get to celebrate my very own hero, my husband!
Typically, in the past this weekend meant going to the beach, eating my weight in ice-cream and fresh fruit, sand in my shoes, fireworks, long bike rides, and the smell of bar-b-que in the air.
This weekend always represents the little taste of summer before it really actually begins.
Just because we’re in Korea doesn’t mean we let the Memorial Day weekend festivities go by without getting out and enjoying ourselves.
Saturday we packed up the car and were some of the only crazies on the road at 4AM, bound for the (East Coast) Sacheon beach.
Lots of diving, cooking out, toes in the sand, and laughs all around.
Did you know Monday is also a significant Korean holiday? Yes, it’s Buddha’s birthday.
6 hours in the car…Need we say more? Ah well, totally worth it! Wonderful weekend with great friends!
How was your holiday weekend? How do you typically spend it?
