It's steaming hot here in Thunder Bay, yesterday it was 41 C with the humidity. A person can barely function in this kind of heat. If you're lucky and it's your day off, most of us will head to the Lake. There are lots of inland Lakes here, and of course, the Big Kahuna, Lake Superior. There is almost always a cool breeze blowing off Lake Superior. I'd be so happy if you left me a comment and let me know what your favourite activity is when the temperature gets unbearably hot!
Some of us will head South, to Gran Marais, in Minnesota which is about an hour from Thunder Bay. I just realized it's July 4th, Happy July 4th to our American neighbours!!!
These rocks have been here for centuries, see the signature above from 1902...
There were many people that day making rock sculptures on the side of Lake Superior. Never underestimate the value of play, it's food for your Soul. Of course, the cool breezes, the sound of the waves, and the ions wafting around from the Lake, all help to make you feel better in Body, Mind & Spirit!

Here at Camellia's we have Jewels made for you by a local Artisan - I just love this frog necklace, and it's all on stretchy cord.
Lovely Pitchers which can do double-duty as a Flower Vase.
What a Treat - a bar of Sweet Grass Farm Lavender soap - all can be found at here at the shop at Camellia's.
Yesterday, the heat was so much, we traipsed off to Lake Marie Louise ( Sibley Provincial Park) and Silver Island. This would mean travelling along the Sleeping Giant Mountain ridge you see when looking out from the Harbour.
Lots of wildlife to see...
Finally we were cool! A nice, cooling breeze blowing off Lake Superior. After all the heat, it felt good. Life, after all, is all relative.
Crystal clear waters.
