The calendar displays August and the thermometer does too. The past week has been quite warm with temperatures in the 80’s. Dips in the river throughout a hot day make the heat more bearable and it cools the body down so you can get to sleep comfortably at night. When I’m in town I have to drive to a lake to cool off.
My niece and I went down to Lake Superior tonight to take a dip but the wind had changed directions and the water at the shore couldn’t have been more than 40 degrees. We put our feet in and they instantly started to get numb so we decided we were not going to take even a brief dip. We drove up to Devil’s Track Lake and that water was much warmer.
There’s nothing better than a swim in a cold, clear lake.
