Jack’s Walk

Well, it’s not raining. In fact, it’s a hot, sunny day here which just goes to show that weather forecasting is an inexact science. Jack and I haven’t gone for a walk today partly because of the heat and partly because Jack got a bit over-excited last evening while playing with his best friend Leo (who is only 4 and half Jack’s size) and he’s limping a bit on his right back leg. It’s not serious, Bubba has a bit of arthritis in that hip and sometimes it gives him a bit of grief. Maybe tonight when the temp goes down a bit (it’s 30° C right now) I’ll take him down to the end of the street and back, but for now Jack has positioned himself in front of the A/C vent and is happily asleep. Our photo today is where Jack and I wish we were. This is the beach across the street from my mother-in-law’s house in Perce, Quebec.

    We are living the heat wave in the US southeast. It was upper 90’s Freedomheit today (about 37 C). The rest of the week is expected to be slightly cooler with a chance of thunderstorms. But the humidity is awful. Without A/C, I would simply melt into a puddle of goo.

    Living in 30 °C sounds awful. Here the temperatures are in a range (11 °C -- 18 °C), which a Canadian from Toronto informed me on Tuesday as not being summer temperatures. The guy was doing some kind of a Baltic Tour and it was his last night in Finland and he had decided to visit the same (old and traditional) public sauna that I happened to visit. We chatted about weather, sauna and so on.

    Oh and the scenery in the picture is gorgeous. I bet there’s a nice breeze there.

    I love the rocher peeking out like that, a familiar face.
    Yeah, our heatwave has passed, we are now enjoying “green winter” but it’s early July -- who knows where the summer will go.
    Stay cool, stay hydrated, and best wishes to Jack (and you!)!
