If all our friends could whine incessantly at the beginning of the season about how wet and flooded things were, then by golly we should be allowed to prattle on about the heat. Actually they are doing the same thing, so it’s not just we who are feeling the discomfort of a long hot summer.
Naturally, we found a lovely spot in the shade today, by a little barrage with it’s babbling little sounds that left us in a perpetual state of wanting to wee. Some of our number blamed that on the constant intake of cool fluids, and they may have had a point.
Lest we should give the impression that we have become entirely inactive, let us report that the view from the top of the “fort of rock” was even more breathtaking than the climb.
