It is going to be another scorcher, but that's OK because there is relief in the back yard. We bobbed around the pool several times this weekend, far away from the computers, the TVs and the iPhones. The mosquitoes did find us after a while, but we splashed them away languidly, and pushed off the wall for another lazy lap through the broth-warm water.
Have you visited the Spy Osprey Cam lately? Those young birds have gotten big and adventurous. Mama O looks beside herself some days, keeping the two from falling out of the nest. She needs a nice swim in the river, and maybe some Prosecco!
