It's June 28th, seven days after the Summer Solstice and days are getting shorter (the day after the Solstice we already lost one minute of daylight!). To make matters worse, tomorrow I start work for 5 consecutive weeks. So, to take advantage of my last day of vacation, this is what I did.
7:00 Fed the dogs. Read the paper.
9:20 Cindy dropped me off with my kayak while she went to church. I tried kayaking around Abercrombie State Park but the waves were too high (there were some 5 footers near the rocks) so I stayed in Mill Bay.
11:30 Cindy returns to pick me up and have lunch. Then it is siesta time.
3:50 Cindy goes off to tennis and I go bike out to the water reservoir. We had been there a few days before. But as I rested I saw something that wasn't there at that time. Three fresh deposits of bear scat. Needless to say, I cut my rest time short and pedaled back quickly.
5:30 Washed the car and had dinner
7:00 Took the dogs on a short 2 miles hike to Island Lake and down the creek back home.
8:30 We are both off to the VFW shooting range to practice. Cindy is liking this sharp shooting stuff (I think because she is better than I am).
9:30 Then it's back home for showers, resting and lowering the black-out shades to get some rest before work the next day.
The sun has been shining for weeks, the air temp is 61 and the water temp is a warm 49 degrees! The only good thing about work is that I can do much after leaving the hospital since the days are still quite long.
Hope you too are having fun.
