Not Floating

I’d hoped to spend the day floating down the Bogue Chitto in an innertube. But for some damn reason, the place we planned to patronize (Wayne’s World) isn’t renting today. I guess they’re afraid of a big electrical storm.

So I went to work instead, which isn’t bad, but it’s not the same as floating down a river. My one and only float trip was about three years ago on the same river, and it was about the most fun I’ve ever had. One guy had a waterproof camera and took pictures of the whole excursion which I can use to torture myself.

Speaking of pix, last night I took this one of Xy:

I love the way it turned out.

I don’t know — the weather looks great today. These last few days have been perfect, exactly the kind of weather I love most. Hot, yes, with highs in the upper 80s, but not so insufferably sticky, with humidity somewhere between 50% and 60%. Sunshine mixed with shade, as lots of big fluffy white clouds drift by, sometimes forming surreal and mind-blowingly beautiful panoramas on the brilliant blue sky. A gentle rain shower in the afternoon, just enough to cool things down a little. We haven’t even been running the AC at night. June is without a doubt the best time of year.

But I guess there is something brewing down in the Gulf, and her name is Arlene. Yup, hurricane season is upon us once again.
