The Hindsight Notes: Your Teenaged Summer Haunt

10 Jun

The Hindsight Notes is a recurring section created for all you readers wanting to participate in THL, but lacking time to write a full letter. Each Note is composed of a question. All you need to do is answer it, in the form of a comment (below).

This week’s topic is: Your Teenaged Summer Haunt.

School’s out. The weather’s warm. You’ve got endless time to hang with your buds and get into lots and lots of trouble. Every group of teenagers has “their spot” to chill out when the weather’s warm. This week, we want to hear all about yours. Maybe it was a beach. Maybe it was a patio. Maybe it was a city park that would turn a blind eye to a rowdy group of teenagers drinking Old English and singing Sublime at the top of their lungs (or maybe that was just me?).

As always, I’ll start us out…


If you liked this post, you’ll surely love this one and this one!

    Cliffwood Park. Just the sound of those two words brings back such good memories. Cliffwood Park is a park near my old high school where my group of friends would convene in the warm weather. It was a short bus ride from my house. It was conveniently located behind a strip mall with a Mac’s Convenience store perfect for healing those late night munchies. I spent many a night drinking wine coolers on the park benches with my friends, singing, dancing and generally creating a disturbance until very early in the morning.

    Toronto has very hot, humid summers, and the evenings are this perfect warm, breezy temperature that just creates this need to be outside. I have such good memories of spending time in that park, the warm night breeze in my hair, giggling away, no responsibilities, no time constraints, not a care in the world. Ah, those were the days.

    when we ran the streets of southern alabama on summer nights, we would always end up at fairhope pier. back in the day, the town fathers struck a peaceful little deal with us teenage reprobates: don’t drink and don’t bother the fishermen, and you can hang out here 24/7. what a great thing – we sat on the pier all night long, talking and laughing, avoiding the weird little jellyfish that the net fishers brought up with their catches. i have always loved the water, and this was my version of heaven. i miss it more and more with each passing day…

    Two places: The Fry’n Pan on 10th St. in Sioux Falls, and Frank Olson pool. If I wasn’t at the pool, I was eating muffins with my friends 🙂
