it is October 9th and it was 22C today! we were thrilled! and of course took the opportunity to run down to the river for another freezing dip - and it was freezing! but we loved it - and have our fingers crossed that we can do it again tomorrow!
here's a few pics. notice that the river line has finally gone down (and we are finally "staying above the water line" RW. he is a dear friend! you can find him here and i suggest that if you are serious about prepping/survivalism - that you go to his blog, which can teach you so much and has taught us SOOO much! thank you RW!)
anyway - here's the pics:
i have another post coming about our river being backed up... and is finally now back to normal - but that didn't change the water temps - it must have been only 13C (55F) today! freezing! absolutely freezing! here's a pic of the river and sky because i sooo love the river and sky - how could you not love this?
man - it was freezing! but the sun was so hot that once you got out - you dried off pretty quick! but we took a towel and our bathrobes just in case. and isn't it awesome to have the perfect tree to hang it all off of?
here we are sharing a towel - we didn't need the bathrobes but are sure glad that we brought them just in case. again - we are gonna try for one more dip tomorrow!
that's me shivering after i got out of the freezing water!
and that's jambaloney - shivering and freezing too!
but we sat on our "river" blanket and enjoyed some beer and wine - teehee - what a great way to spend an afternoon!
the summer is over and we realize that. hopefully tomorrow we can have one last dip in our river. but if not, even though this summer kind of sucked - we had some glorious days down at the river. and we enjoyed every one of them. and wished you all could have been there with us.
mind you - if you all had of been there with us - we promise that we WOULD have worn clothes!
and for anyone that may have missed it - make certain to check out jambaloney's post about the bathroom heater below!!!!
