Family history – Summer Essence

What did your family do in the summer?

Holidays?  Where did you go to?  Did you just stay with family in other areas?
Days out?  Where did you visit?

The Royal Family move to the Highlands of Scotland and the Pope moves out of Rome, did your family have a summer residence !

Come and entertain us with your memories, photos and souvenirs !
