夏日

夏天,是被海浪冲涮过无数次的冲浪板,是七月份怒放的向日葵,是晒得黝黑发亮的肌肤,是随风摇曳的棕榈树,是瞬间冲上夜空又炸开来的五彩斑斓花火,是寄居蟹在沙滩里钻出得一个又一个沙窝,是深蓝色海底中与鱼儿共舞的身影,是刺目阳光中微微眯起来的双眼。

 

夏日之颜色

夏天应该是蓝色。因为大海盛开在夏天,夏天的海浪是冲浪者的最爱,夏天的阳光是度假人的最爱,夏天的沙滩是孩子们的最爱,夏天的深海是潜水者的最爱。海洋,是夏日最美丽的一道风景,每年的7、8月份,大海把人们从城市拉到了沙滩边,它是夏天最大的装点和和最美的惊喜。

夏天应该是绿色,因为所有植物都在这一季开到极致,绿也绿得鲜脆欲滴,红也红得妖娆动人。山林都褪去了春天的嫩绿色,换上了一身翠绿的新装。阳光透过山林的绿叶在松软的土地上投下了一个又一个的光斑,让乡间的人赞叹阳光的美丽,让走在柏油路上的都市人感喟阳光的酷热。夏天的绿色还是冰饮旁边的那一抹薄荷叶,是酸酸的绿柠檬,是伸个懒腰望向窗外时远山的色调。

 

夏日之游趣

夏天,去山里吧!浓荫蔽日,清泉流淌。绿地和植被丰富的山林里永远充盈着比市区新鲜的空气。拄着山中小路旁折断的树枝,与三两好友,在夏日雨后清晨漫步山林之间。耳闻黄莺婉转,溪水淙淙,世界都为黄莺和溪水安静了下来,大城市的喧嚣浮躁留在钢筋水泥丛林之中。傍晚回到住所,家人聚在一起篝火烧烤,让火光照亮每个人的笑脸,将欢乐的时光映入盈盈笑眼。偶尔抬起头,看着天空中的星星像电灯泡一样眨着眼睛,瞬间醉在了对宇宙的向往之中。每当我们迷路时,抬头望望星空,也许会有不一样的答案。蛙鸣,是夏天独有的声音。沉浸在山林中的你我,在睡不着的深夜也可以听一听那蛙鸣,单调但安稳。

夏天,来水边吧!浪花一层一层涌上岸边,先是蓝色的水,然后是白色的 泡沫,细看还有更小的泡沫层层堆叠。总是路过人工喷泉的人们,浪花的样子已经在脑海中模糊。去海边,已经成为了夏天的惯例,冲浪、游泳、潜水、打球、晒太阳,也是惯例。蓝色的大海那么蓝,在阳光的映照反射下闪闪发光,在海风的吹拂下前后涌动,发出巨大的浪潮声。黄色的沙滩那么灿烂,那金黄的沙子激起孩子们爆发出一阵又一阵的笑声,相恋的情侣在上面留下相依相偎的足印,深陷其中的脚丫被黄沙细细摩挲。蔚蓝色的大海中,人们像鱼儿一样遨游其中,带着潜水镜好奇地看着这个与陆地上截然不同的深蓝世界。任成群小鱼在身旁游动,亲近珊瑚与岩石,偶尔仰起头,海面上仿佛成为了另外一个世界,连阳光都忽然遥远了起来。

夏日之食趣

夏天最让人垂涎欲滴的当然是各种海鲜。海鲜在中国沿海城市例如青岛、大连、厦门、澳门、宁波等地可谓是夏日不可缺少的菜品。各种不同的海鲜地区不同叫法不同,连烹调方式都大有分别。比如海鲜中最常见的蛤蜊,青岛海滩饭店的做法是白蒸或者热炒,而在相距不远的大连蛤蜊则是腌制后生吃。如果漂洋过海来到日本,蛤蜊又有了不同的吃法:放在味增汤里,或者蒸蛋时放在底部。同一种海鲜,用了不同的烹调方法味道也是各有千秋,到各地旅行的人们一定不要错过让舌头辨味、丰富味蕾的每一个机会。旅行归来对当地饮食如数家珍会也让您的旅行拥有加倍的余味。

夏日的饮品应该是啤酒、白葡萄酒和香槟。啤酒最早产自德国,至今德国人还有感冒了喝热啤酒的习俗。而在国内,源自德国工艺的青岛啤酒大概是最受欢迎的啤酒品牌了。其实除了德国,欧洲很多国家都有酿造啤酒的传统,而且味道品种多得数都数不过来。上海、青岛等地每到夏天都会举办多场啤酒节活动,啤酒种类之多、口味之丰富令人瞠目。夏天多吃海鲜,白葡萄酒当然是餐桌上不可缺少的一道饮品,去朋友家聚会,随手带上一瓶白葡萄酒,年份不用太久,口味甘醇可口,饮酒共乐不可谓不快。

 

夏日之工作、学习

对于孩子们来说,夏天最让人期待的就是暑假了。两个月的漫长夏日时光在小孩子们看来是一年中最欢乐的日子。约上同伴去郊游、玩乐,连街道上的树荫都变得美妙。不再需要每天穿着校服来来去去,爱美的女孩子们这时候最喜欢的就是每天换上不同的衣服出门。男孩子们终于可以没有了数学课、语文课、英语课专心致志地上一个夏天的体育课了。在各种球场上挥洒汗水,把皮肤晒得健康黝黑。9月份开学时课堂上坐着得是跟春天完全不一样的小男孩、小女孩。

对于青少年们来说,夏天是个伸展的季节。在高中或大学的暑假,寻找一份适合的实习或者找一个陌生的地方旅游,都是探索人生,伸展个性的好时光。两个月绵长的时间,可以去台湾,可以去太平洋的某个小岛,可以去非洲,也可以去芬兰看看湖。可以去澳大利亚学两个月的英语,可以去美国打工度假。少年的时光,每一分钟都是对未知世界的探索,每一秒钟都是对自我和人生的丰富认知。 永远充满着好奇心的少年人,向夏天进发吧。

对于大人们来说,夏天还要工作的话,就选一个山清水秀的地方吧。离开办公室,到大自然中去开一场绿色会议。让绿叶阳光成为闲暇时的放松方式,让采摘蔬果和钓鱼成为工作之余的活动。夏天多么适合放松,也就多么适合工作。那就让放松和工作一起,共同成为美好人生的一部分。

 

Summer

Summer, it is seen from the surfboard washed tens of thousands of time by the wave; it is seen from sunflower full blooming in July; it is seen from shiny dark tan skin; it is seen form swaying palm tree, it is seen from fireworks that once rushed to the night sky and then disappeared; it is seen from home of hermit crab on the beach; it is seen from figure who dance among fish in the deep blue sea; it is seen from slightly narrowed eyes because of the summer sunshine.

 

Summer’s Color

Summer should be blue, since blue sea blooms in summer. Wave is the favorite part for surfers; sun is the favorite part for holiday, beach is the favorite place for children; sea is the favorite part for divers. Ocean is the most beautiful scenery in summer. Every year in July and August, sea pulled people from big city to beach side—it is summer’s most beautiful surprise.

Summer should be green, since all plants stretch to the extreme in this season. Mountains have took off tender spring green, and put on a sparkling green clothes. The sun through the leaves dropped light spots on the soft forest land one after another, so that country people praise the beauty of the sunshine, while urban ones complain about its hotness. Summer is seen from mint leaves decorating the glass or the green lemon by the side. It is that green tone of the forest when you look out from window of the office.

 

Summer’s Tour

Summer, go to the mountains! Mountain covered by green and rich vegetation is always filled with  fresh air compared to the city. Leaning a roadside broken branches, with two or three friends, stroll between rain forest in the summer morning. Listen to the oriole’s song as well as the streams running. The world seems to quiet down for them. Big city’s noise stays in reinforced concrete jungle. When the night fall, families get together and put on campfire. The campfire illuminate everyone ’s smile, greets the happy moments. If you occasionally raised your head, and looked at the stars in the sky instantly, you will be drunk by the beautiful curious universe. Whenever we get lost,  look up at the stars, and we will get a different answer. Frog’s tweet is the unique sound of summer. In the middle of the night that you can not fall in asleep,  then listen to the frogs. Their tweets are monotonous but comforting.

Summer, come to the waterside! Wave swarm to the shore layer by layer, blue water first, then white foam. Urban people passing daily the fountain have forgot what the real wave looked like.  Going to the beach has became to a customer: surfing, swimming, diving, playing.  Sea is so blue: it breezes under the sun’s reflection; it vocalized loudly  in the front and rear surging wave. Yellow sand is so bright: it arouses children burst after burst of laughter; couple left footprints side by side above. Deep in the blue sea, divers looked every detail of this different world separating from the land. Even the sun became suddenly far away.

 

Summer’s Savor

Summer, the most in taste is from the seafood. Seafood, for China’s coastal cities such as Qingdao, Dalian, Xiamen, Macau, Ningbo and other places is indispensable summer dishes. They even have different names in different regions for the same kind, so as the cooking methods For example, the most common seafood “clams”, Qingdaoist use white steamed or stir-fried as cooking methods, while Dalianist eat it without cooking. As for Japan, clams have another way of eating: put it into miso soup, or on the bottom of steamed eggs. The same kind of seafood tastes totally different with different way of cooking. People must not miss every opportunity to rich your experience as a bon vivant.

Summer, the most in drink is beer, white wine and champagne. Beer was first produced in Germany. In China, Qingdao Beer using the Germany process is probably the most popular brand. In fact, in addition to Germany, European countries have a tradition of brewing beer, but the taste varieties thanks to the different technics.  Every summer several Oktoberfest events will be held in Shanghai, Qingdao and other Chinese cities. You will be surprised by the numerous types of different beer gathering together. Usually we eat seafood during summer, and white wine then became that necessary  drink. If you go to a friend’s home party, bring a bottle of white wine.

 

Working, Studying during Summer

For children, summer is the most expected season throughout a year. A two-month long summer vacation appears to be the most joyous days for children. Suddenly everything becomes wonderful. No more uniforms, and girls could enjoy putting on different dresses everyday. The boys could finally concentrate on the court playing football, basket ball baseball etc. When they  september begins, you will see totally different look of children, more tan skin for boys, more beautiful haircut for girls.

For teenagers, the summer season is a good chance to explore the world, by finding a suitable internship or a great place for travel. Lingering two months time, you can go to Taiwan, you can go to a small island of the Pacific, you can go to Africa, you can also go to Finland to see the lakes. You can go to Australia for two months to learn English, you can go to the United States for a working holiday. Teenage time, every minute is to explore the unknown world, every second is self-awareness and life abundant. For teenagers always full of curiosity, run for summer, run!

For adults, if the summer need also to work, then choose a beautiful place for your meeting. Away from the office, go to nature and have a green meeting. Let nature decorate your busy meeting, and make picking fruits become team building. Summer is for work, but it is also for relax, so let relaxation and work together to help you achieve a better life.
