… NO walk in the park, as that expression goes. I detest this hot weather, despite gritting my teeth and scowling at each shovelful of snow hefted and every ice pellet that stung my face through an overly long Winter and cold Spring. Yes, I swore I would not complain come Summer when temps soared and humidity made me want to melt into a puddle on the ground.
This is day #6 of the heat wave, once again with the scorching temps and high humidity. Singer Jimmy Buffett makes a gentle island breeze and the tropical clime sound oh so inviting and fun. Sadly, I’m somehow missing the feel-good of the tropics with this weather though.
The heat may be hindering any painted rock drops at the Park these days. I’ve not seen any of the colorful beauties at Council Point Park, so perhaps kids and parents are painting away, but not heading out in these searing temps, hoarding them instead in air-conditioned homes until the weather is just right for placing and discovering. We will get a small reprieve in the heat this weekend, so I’ll be on the prowl for all those pretty rocks to surface.
However, I did glimpse this Old Glory painted rock across from Council Point Park a while ago and saved the photo I took of it for today’s post. My friend Ann Marie painted many flag-inspired rocks and hid them around Council Point Park last Summer.
I hope you’re having a safe and enjoyable 4th of July.
I’ll leave you with a quote for this Independence Day holiday, right after this photo of a painted rock with a meaningful message.
There are two educations: one should teach us how to make a living, and the other how to live. ~ John Adams, second U.S. President and one of the Founding Fathers
