Sharon Rowe @ Half dome

CEO/Founder of Eco-Bags Products, Inc. enjoying her summer at Half Dome in Yosemite.

I’m beginning to feel the dregs of summer, even though it’s still so hot out that I’m sweating at 9am as I get myself ready to leave for work.

But somehow that sad end of summer feeling persists in it’s lingering – it’s the feeling of a little kid pulling at it’s moms skirt begging not to leave the swim club, not yet.

And as I get older summer fades quicker and quicker, as I find less and less time to enjoy it.

So, I’m going to make a bucket list and finish it by September 21st, and I’m hoping to inspire some of you to do the same – to go outside and enjoy the extraordinarily hot and humid weather – because I know soon we’ll all be complaining that it’s far too cold and wishing summer to make it’s appearance as soon as possible.

  1. Swim in a pool or lake – don’t judge me for not having done this yet this summer!
  2. Go kayaking along the beautiful & iconic Hudson river.
  3. Spend a day at the Cloisters and then have a picnic.
  4. Eat a giant ice cream cone at my favorite organic creamery… yum! (do you have a favorite ice cream spot?)
  5. Hike! I’m going to go on a nice, long summer hike. Preferably upstate in New Paltz, NY.
  6. Visit a National Park in celebration of their centennial.

And that’s it… I’m keeping it simple. I’m going to enjoy the outdoors while I have a chance, before it’s so cold that my nose burns from breathing in the smoky, wintry air.

Hopefully you’ll do the same – you’ll opt to talk a walk at your local park instead of spending the day consuming items and air conditioning at the mall.
