Ideas For Summer Screen-Free Activities

Summertime in West Alabama might look a little bit different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.  Typically by now, I have made my summer vacation plans, which include a few trips to the beautiful beaches of Alabama, visiting family and friends in Florida, and a few self-care weekends.  But, as of right now, nothing is planned.  I mean nothing because the ‘Rona sure has taken a toll on making any firm plans.  I feel like that most of my summer plans will be last minute and spontaneous.  However, I found a great resource to have some great summer screen-free activities from SWNS Digital.

Here are the SWNS Digital’s
