It's Finally HERE!!
SUMMER! Yes, Summer is finally here in New England. We have had the worst weather I ever can remember. The news said we had three sunny days the whole month of June. And I believe it. We also had rain the first couple weeks of July. But this weekend was beeeeeeeeeeuuteeeeeefull. It wasn't HOT. Hot is 80-90 degrees. Hot means putting on the air conditioning in the living room. Which we haven't done yet. Not once. Hot means coming home and taking a cold shower to get the hot/sticky/humidity off your body. I haven't done that yet either. Hot means using the air conditioner in the car. Not once. Yesterday was mid-70's and SUNNY! The beautiful sunshine we've all been craving. Hubby and I were anxious to be outside, so we went over to Winnekinni Castle which is on the shore of Kenoza Lake. We hiked all the way around the lake....about 2 1/2 hours. It was so relaxing. And today we took out the CANOE! Can you believe it? Finally. We went up to Lake Massabesic, about 1/2 hour from our hours. It was so lovely. Please forgive my lack of photos.....we didn't bring the camera. It was a nice, big lake, and very tranquil. We saw lots of sailboats and a few speedboats. There is no swimming in this lake but we spent about three hours paddling around it and didn't see the whole thing. I finally feel like I had a weekend. It was so invigorating to be outside. I hope the rest of the summer will continue like this. We deserve it!
