Hot on the water

We got out to the lake about 11 a.m. and it was already getting pretty hot. Not too much wind, maybe 5 kmh, but we set up and launched anyway. Again we toured the south end of the lake, due to the light winds, so we stayed fairly close to the harbour. 

It was good to have a snack and a huge jug of ice water as it was getting incredibly hot around 1 p.m. The little bit of wind that we did help, but I did have to keep dipping my hat in the water to keep cool. It was a good idea bringing the sunscreen today, not a cloud in the sky, so the sun beat down on us constantly. Not bad for Cheryl who tans instantly, but my skin is about as white as they come and the sun burns me fast and easy. 

Overall though, it was a great day on the water. We spent about 3.5 hours on the lake.
