The humidex hit 45 C in Sarnia today. That's 113 F for my metric deficient friends. At least 10 cities in Ontario posted record high temps. Luckily for us we left the hustle and bustle of everyday life a few days early and escaped to the cabin for an extra long weekend on the West Side.
Today the beach was calling and the clean cool waters of Lake Michigan kept the scorching temps at bay. After spending the best part of the day on the beach with the girls I managed to slip down to the river to spend some time waste deep with my thoughts and a few finned friends.
The pinnacle of Summer presents it's own challenges when chasing trout but determination and fine tools always meet the mark. Today the Imperial once again proved it's place on the river and together we managed to fool a few Summer Browns.
