As quickly as the scorching-hot summer days arrived, they seem to have departed. I have hopes for more warm, golden September days at the beach, but honestly I’m breathing a sigh of relief that the weeks on end of hot weather have come to an end. I was so excited to turn the oven on and roast a chicken and make muffins a couple of days ago!
While I still don’t have any new sewing projects to share (ahem, must get to that curtain), I do have some photos from a late-summer day at the park.
Low water has exposed sand flats, perfect for endless running.
E noticed some big girls who had found mud! She couldn’t resist going for a mud bath too. At first I was somewhat hesitant to let her, but really isn’t this what childhood is for?
Swamp thing! Time for a dunk in the lake…
We ran into some friends playing beautiful marimba music in the park.
The Kokanee salmon are spawning up the river – we see it every year but it is still amazing!
Posing for tourist shots at the interpretive centre in the park – I am a bear about to eat a salmon of course:)
There are drawbacks to living in the middle of nowhere – long travel times to get anywhere, an unreliable airport, no fabric or yarn – but I am so grateful to have wilderness in our back yard.
