Tell Us What Remains of Your Summer Memories

Sunday, May 24, 2009

Most of us can't seem to remember if we turned off the coffee pot before leaving the house. Yet, when it comes to summer memories from our childhood, we have total recall. We can describe, to the very last log in the fireplace, the layout of the Adirondacks cabin our parents rented every summer until we were out of braces. Or the name of our favorite clam shack during Cape Cod vacations, in addition to the home state of the waitress.

For an upcoming Travel section, we are looking for your summer vacation stories: Tell us about the experience, who was there and why you loved it. Also include your name, city and state, daytime phone number and e-mail address; send your submission by May 31 by e-mail (; put Summer Vacation in the subject line) or by mail (Summer Vacation, Washington Post Travel Section, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071).

Summer really can be eternal.
