This summer hasn't been near as nice as last year which could not have been more perfect. But it also hasn't been oppressively miserable like 2012 and 2013 either. When the humidity is pegged, the only place to get any kind of relief is down by the water. My cousin was in town and we met up for breakfast, then headed down to the Sandwich Marina.
I don't remember the water being this clear when I was a kid.
I would love to own this one!

By the end of that week, the humidity had gone down significantly, but it was still extremely hot out. My outdoor thermometer showed 98 in my yard! But by the end of the day, the breeze kicked up so I went for a late afternoon walk around the neighbourhood and into town. This tree is in my yard and blooms once in the spring and again in the middle of summer. I've never seen a flowering tree do that.
Irish American Pirates must live here.
The breeze at the Canal was so delicious that I wish I'd brought a chair. I hated to leave to go home.
I love these silverback leaf trees. Not sure if that's what they are called, but they are very striking on a breezy day.
It's already August and I haven't done hardly any of the day trips I'd planned out this spring, and now the summer is rapidly drawing to a close.
