Chilling on the Tuckaseegee River!

I don't have to tell you it was deadly hot this weekend. But, it was. UGH

We got up Saturday and did our chores. I also worked out all before 11:00 am. Then I went to the garden to pick some tomatoes and I could only stay out for minutes. It was that hot. Even Tom who loves being outside couldn't take it.

Luckily, the other day, Tom had bought us some inner tubes because we are planning a trip to the lake in August. So he said we should go out and take a dip in the river. The river runs feet from our front yard.

The only problem is that there is an embankment you have to go down and there is poison ivy and crap so we couldn't just go in. So we decided to drive down the river road to a little area where you can walk into the river.

It was heaven. At first it was cold but once we got in the tubes, it was fantastic. I finally got out of the tube and sat down because the current was pretty strong. But just being in the cool water on a bloody hot day was fantastic!!

If this heat keeps up, it looks like we will be going in the river a lot more often!


  1. this looks like a perfect way to beat the heat!!!

  2. I can imagine how refreshing that must have felt!

  3. This reminds of Puerto Rico! So fun and a nice way to stay cool in this brutal heat. :-)
