Yesterday at the lake: 111 degrees!

It was a cooker yesterday. You could have fried an egg anywhere outside. It was that hot. If there is good news it is the relative humidity which in the summer out our way it's always close to single digits.

Even at that when it gets over 105 or so everyone hunkers down inside. Recently I read that walking around on very hot days the body sweats between 28 to 32 ounces of fluid an hour. That seems like an awful lot to me. But it also serves to justify drinking a lot of liquids.

I'll take another Bud, please. Gotta stay hydrated, don't ya know...

Grace has found a place on the sailboat that is hers. It's the bow hatch that is accessible through the v-berth.

She's learned that it's easier to look out of the hatch by putting her feet on the teak rails than it is to stand on her tippy toes.

Necessity is still the mother of invention.

Ya think?
