Skaha Lake

It was another hot day today as we shuffle, literally, through this extreme “heat dome” that has settled over most of western North America. Anything more than a shuffle is to invite heat stroke, heart attacks, and profound, sweat-soaked enervation.

But going out early will work. M and I avoided the soaring 42°C (108F) temps that occurred later in the day by leaving for our walk before 8. When we stopped for a rest and water drink, this is the view we saw.

Even in early morning, there’s a heat haze.

We are very fortunate to live across the street from this park with its fabulous swimming beach, and in the upcoming weeks, I plan to spend a lot of time there with several good books.

Stay cool everyone. 🙂

  1. Yes, Lynette. Shade and low effort are our friends these days. Never thought I would look longingly of photos of snow and wish it was here in summer. Stay cool. Allan

    1. Thank you! Lots of people are putting up shade shelters right in the water and then are sitting in their chairs underneath, half submerged, while they watch their kids or just read a book. It’s one way to stay cool!

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
