The Quiet Before the Storm

….how quickly the weather changes on Christian Island

Being on an island in a large body of water, like Georgian Bay, the weather can change very quickly. A couple of weekends ago the water was dead calm and it was great for swimming. I swam for a solid half an hour. The water had warmed up nicely over the summer but the evenings were getting cooler. The breezes coming off the lake, however, were a welcome change from the stifling heat we had experienced in August.

As the afternoon wore on we could hear the rumblings of thunder in the distance and the big fluffy cumulous clouds were starting to darken.

We managed to get back to the cottage before the skies opened up.

A Photo a Week – Up in the Air

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting the Photo a Week Challenge

Interesting challenge this week with so much being ‘up in the air’ so to speak. I took the phrase literally and posted photos of things in the air.68-A2766-E-A87-A-4198-BB6-C-FB8-BD26-ADD7-F-1-201-a
