The temperature hasn’t hit 70 today. This is one of the many reasons why I’m having a very hard time believing that August is almost here. How? Why? Where did Summer 2014 disappear to? My standard operating procedures (i.e. swimming twice a day and drinking beer on the beach) have been mangled by less-than-savory conditions.
Regardless, I’m still finding great ways to immerse myself in northern Michigan summertime (no, not “Summertime in Northern Michigan.” Never that). Attending outdoor events is still enjoyable when the temperature is slightly cooler, and my zero-pigment skin is happy enduring a little less sun than normal.
We’re gearing up for a fun August, nonetheless. Keep your eyes on this site for the following great stories:
