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.
