We’re thinking about changing my niece’s status to “adopted daughter.”
Also, I managed to get in a 25 mile ride this morning. I’ve really got to get out earlier to avoid the heat. I felt faint on the way back, so I had to stop under what little shade I could find under the scrubby beach pines.
I found a path leading to the sound, and walked in, clothes, sneakers, and all. 15 minutes sitting in the cool water was enough to revive me, and I made it home just fine, where I waded into the pool, clothes and all.
Lesson: When it’s hot, leave much earlier in the morning.
