When we were kids, the long weekend in May was the earliest you would even consider being in the lake.
Mom used to say get burned in May and it will turn into tan for the rest of summer.
The sun felt good back then. So did the lake. One would ease the other.
The sun made me sleepy back then. It was like being a garter snake coming out from the clay banks and laying on railway ties. Like everything was okay.
Busier than shit these last few days. It’s close to 100° out there and someone told me the pool was too cold. It’s 78°.
I told them the hot tubs are hotter and the river is colder.
The wasps are building their hives. I was called to take one down. I didn’t feel bad as it was over a doorway. It was a poor choice for the queen. She flew away and I hope she finds a spot underground where it is cool and nobody complains.
There are thousands of tiny grasshoppers out there. They are going to love the coming hot weather.
Lisa says we should get our firewood before they close the bush down. I agree it could be a hotter than hell summer.

Lots of observations today. Has the heat confused the wasps and grasshoppers?
I believe they think it is summer. The snakes are even up early.

Lisa’s probably right. I had no idea herons would tackle turtles!
It’s still very cool here – hasn’t got above 70 degrees yet. Bit more sun though which is good. And the hills are thinking about starting to dry out.
I don’t think Herons would really attack a turtle – what would be the point?
Good to hear you are getting some sun and the trails are drying out. I am looking forward to reading about some new adventures.
