Having said I love hot weather on a summer day, I'm really getting what I wished for! It was sweltering today without as much as a breeze, so I made a blueberry coffee cake, packed up some soft drinks and towels and our morning walking group headed to the beach. The tide was in and the water was incredibly warm. By Nova Scotia standards, the beach was "crowded". Billy said this is the first time in 12 years here that the water at this beach has been warm enough for a comfortable swim.
Haven't been home enough to watch the weather news, and wonder if this warm water will draw the hurricane north. California friends who planned to drive up the east coast & arrive Sunday are now going to push to get here Friday ahead of the storm. If the weather turns bad, it makes it difficult to entertain. I envision us all hanging out in the living room by candlelight!
But that's another day. Meanwhile we'll take advantage of the weather and head back to the beach again tomorrow.
