“Brrr,” said Billy to Bobbie as they gathered mushrooms, pine nuts and red berries. “It’s very cold out here this morning. I miss the summertime when the breeze was warm and the days were bright and there were places to explore along the pond and I could be as lazy as I wanted to be.” He explained. “Me too,” added sister Bobbie.

We at Foxy Travel are selling trips to The Summertime.” “Trips to The Summertime?” said Billy. “What’s that?” “Well, every year about this time all of the critters who live around this wetland community, especially the younger ones, get to thinking about how nice it would be to leave this cold climate behind them and travel to a warmer place. A place that I call The Summertime.
