July 18th, 2007, Hot and Sunny

The weather has been marvelous lately. Hot and sunny with a lot of humidity which makes a body feel wiped out by mid afternoon. Not complaining mind you. We will be back into cold weather soon enough. It's been a very uneventful summer so far, few visits from friends and family. Lots of tourists around though.

The caplin are in on the beaches to spawn now. People are there with nets and buckets scooping them up. Call me crazy, but I won't go on the beach while this is happening as it upsets me. Why can't people just leave them alone....sigh! Big trucks have been going down the road at all hours bringing the fish that the fishermen catch to the plant for processing. The males get thrown out as, I think, it's the Japanese, only want the pregnant females. What a waste.

On to nicer things. My rose bushes are blooming at the moment so here are some pictures. Also the squirrel for Jan, lol.

Can we have some of your hot weather please OC? I've forgotten what the sun looks like. It's even really cold here and I'm still wearing fleece jackets when I go out.

Lovely to see the squirrel photos again.
