My Town Monday: Water Recreation

The great thing about living where I do is the close proximity of recreational water activities.

The main river runs right through town and there are parks alongside it in various places.

Yesterday afternoon we were out at the lake house of some friends, enjoying paddle-boating, tubing, and general water play. Confession: aside from 30 minutes of paddle-boating, I stuck to sitting in the shade and enjoying the view… which was fabulous but I did not bring my camera with me.

Luckily, I did bring my camera with me on Saturday when I drove out to the to the Boy Scout camp where EB is working this summer. Without 300 people running around, it was very peaceful.

And with the heat wave gone, our temperatures are back into the mid-80’s (around 30 C) with a pleasant breeze — in other words, pure perfection.
