A blazing white orb sets the tone for a hot and humid summer day.
Faye and I spent some time on the beach today. Not much time because we did not have sunblock. We expected the water to be chillier than it was.
It was good to get out like this, and good to see so many people out enjoying themselves.
Sunrise, on a late summer day by the calendar. Sunrise, on an early autumn day by how it feels.
Sunrise – yes, sunrise – on a summer morning when cirrus clouds, and the sun, were largely cloaked by smoke from wild fires several hundred klicks away in Manitoba and northwest Ontario.
Yesterday was a good day to cloud-watch. It was hot, humid, and the atmosphere was a little unstable. Cumulus began towering which created some fascinating formations.

An empty country road unrolls in front of me on a warm late summer day.
July’s first half was hot, humid, and frequently cloudless so we endured what we had to. The last ten days or so were like this – a few degrees cooler, often filled with billowing cumulus, and frequent light to moderate rainfall. What a relief!
We will see what August sees fit to bring our way.
