COVID-19 Summer of 2020 makes for a way different one than what we're used too. Being quarantined w/ family, friends / roommates for long periods of time under one roof can make anyone go stir crazy.  Avoiding large groups and the bar scene while washing your hands often, social distancing and wearing a mask seems to put a damper on things we are normally used to doing during a Central Texas Summer. There are alternatives to chilling in front of the TV, that can help take away the Summertime Quarantine Blues. Keep you in the happy kind of mind during quarantine time. Take a mini / day vacay away.  Thanks to DO512.
