A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~James Dent
For the past few days we have had some of those perfect summer days except that it is so hot the lawn mower would overheat if it was working. One of the wonderful things about living in Pinawa is our location on the Winnipeg River with the entire shoreline being for everyone's use. With these temperatures, the water is where one wants to be. The swimming has been great and being able to go for a dip a couple of times a day is a real pleasure. I had to spend a day in Winnipeg last week and I felt like I was melting. Although The Forks is a beautiful place to wander around, I love my Ironwood Trail and my Winnipeg River. As much as this heat makes it hard to get any work done outside - I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but in Pinawa where the dog and I can jump into the river. She swims to retrieve a stick, I swim to revive my energy. It is a perfect summer day.
