Today, the backward cycle started, the first movement. I checked the weather forecast; it is unlikely that the days will reach the 90s again for a prolonged stretch of time and I dismounted the AC, and officially kicked off the rolling up summer wave, which includes moving the plants back inside,also the garden furniture, stacking firewood, picking apples, and applying water protection on the deck. But this is still months away. Days are busy with work, but I try to occasionally sprinkle in a vacation day. The other day I drove by Holbrook Sanctuary, which is close to this heart shaped island. It really is heart-shaped, even Google maps agrees. There is only a single house on the island which recently burnt down. It might be a good destination for a romantic kayak trip and beach fire.
