It’s HOT! What’s your favorite way to keep cool during the Dog Days of Summer? It can be anything...
Well, it might be hot where Andrea is, but right now where I am, it is just pleasantly cool. We’ve had some hot days this summer, though, so I can totally understand where she is coming from!
Here’s my favourite way to keep cool on a hot day:
There’s nothing better than a swim in a cool, clear Northern British Columbia lake when the temperature is at its hottest. I particularly love swimming right off the boat. No weeds, no leeches, no mucky bottoms or sharp rocks underfoot to worry about it. It’s lovely to drift along with a cold drink in hand, and when the sun gets too intense, drop like a rock into the dark depths and feel the chill wash the heat from your skin.
Of course, if we can’t get to a lake, air conditioning is always a great way to get out of the heat. Not that we have it in our home—most summers that isn’t a necessity in my part of the world. :)
How do you cool off? Are you a water person? Let me know in the comments, then head over to Jenna Da Sie to see how that California resident cools off!
