I took my vacation in June this year, instead of the usual July. I am insufficiently qualified, however, to go in August:
In August, tree-shaded neighborhoods and private membership pools all over snoburbia empty out as the entire snoburbs goes on vacation.
In snoburbia, you must choose your vacations carefully. Any beach anywhere is okay, especially if you own a beach house. If you don’t own a beach house, you must go to Cape Cod or environs, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont. Or California wine country, Italy or maybe the Caribbean. If you stick around here you are not interesting.
I’ll admit to “not interesting,” but just once, I’d like to hear about someone who lives year-round in the Hamptons and vacations in, say, Bismarck, North Dakota.
