Summer heat arrived over the last week or two… along with multitudes of mosquitoes and deer flies… I’ve been helping the Porcupine with some work on his property, and was swarmed with deer flies. We’ve all been there. The Porcupine said “just hold still, I can get this one” — I should have known better. They probably heard me yell next door.


At least he got it. Or so he told me.

This week I am hopefully (finally!) getting a roof rack for my new-to-me car, which means I will be able to get the kayak loaded and hit some water! I’ve only been out once this year, and I am so ready for some paddling time. I hope you are all having a great summer so far!
