Everyone loves a nice hot summer!! It means lots of quality time spent at the lake or beach or backyard pool…or in my case my kiddie pool ( hey, don’t laugh, it’s great on these hot days) That’s what memories of great summers ( and golden tans ) are made of right?

Well, this summer’s forecast was one of the hottest and driest on record and it didn’t start that way back in early June BUT…boy was the predictions right! WE are having the HOTTEST, DRIEST summer in 40 years! So dry that is, that it has sparked many fires, BIG fires, and has closed local trails in the province!

Not a pretty sight for some of our province’s beautiful forests!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.

One thought on “Ahh…summer”

  1. We need it here in Cali too 😦 The fires are scary! Also- nothing wrong with a kiddie pool 😉 My mom did the same thing this summer in Dallas. It’s been a hot one!
