For my family, Memorial Day has always meant camping. I cannot remember a time when we didn’t spend the first official day of summer at our lake property with friends and family, relishing in the day off from work and school and looking forward to the summer ahead.
Times have changed a bit. Instead of camping, now we’re probably doing what’s considered “glamping”, if even that. There’s a lovely house where we used to pitch our tents and later, found shelter in a camp trailer.
