Here in Vermont we are in high summer. Down at the boat house everyone is enjoying the shade, taking time out from the blinding heat and light. It does not take long on the water for folks to burn and dehydrate and it sure is good to know there are cool drinks to be had back on land.
Given the lake water is at record warmth, and far from the boat house door, it is easy to forget that spring can bring flooding and hypothermia. For now, though, the days are tail waggingly beautiful.
