What I Did On My Summer Vacation

It's unofficially fall and that means it's time to ask that age old question "What did you do on your summer vacation?" Now I realize for many (most?) aquatics professionals, summer is the last time to take a vacation, but working on Aquatics International, my schedule is a little different.
