where to be on a hot summer day

This is the kind of picture an Olympus Stylus (shockproof + waterproof) can get you- water line, half waterline or fully submerged if you like. We now have 3 generations of this camera, all used by different posse members- still working splendidly. Mental note- waterproof doesn’t mean buoyant.

It’s finally getting really hot, just as the kids go back to school. weird. Here is my daughter Q enjoying a sailing lesson day with her dad, the photographer. We’ve got three different ‘first days of school’ this week, elementary (charter school) started on Monday, the middle school starts tomorrow, high school (10th +) start on Friday. Two more days of freedom for this gal, and counting down. That’s the kid countdown, my countdown goes like this… two more days till a clean, quiet, peaceful house.

The lake water is delightfully in the 70’s (just barely) and feeling good. Open water swimming as the sun rises over the mountains have been some of my best summer moments.
