Beautiful Day For a Float

I was out with the boys this morning, on our walk and I could almost feel the weather change around me. There was some random dude out, washing his car and one other dog-walker, but aside from that, I was alone with my thoughts. Only a month ago, I'd have to get up with Marc at 6:30am so that I could get out before it got too hot out. Now, I wait until 7:30 and have to wear long sleeves and pants. My body felt warm underneath my pink-on-pink running jacket, but the wind nipped at my face and hands and I never reached the point where I had to take it off. Summer's on her way out, which means that we'll soon be in my favourite season, fashion wise, but I'm sad to see her go.

However, it's shaping up to be a beautiful and hot day out today so we're going tubing on the Nashwaaksis. It's been rainy this week and the water's finally up enough so that we can throw our butts in a black rubber donut and let the current carry us, and the afternoon, away. It's just the two of us today, which is a first, but I don't imagine that we'll be alone, as the clear, blue sky probably means that we'll run into others. If you haven't experience Nature's version of a lazy river, I highly recommend it as the activity has quickly skyrocketed to the top of the "Best parts of NB" list.

And the total cost is under $10.

Long live the Maritimes!

UPDATE: The water was freezing but the sun was warm!
