In August, the soil and soul long for water.
We’re in the throes of dog days, those hot sultry weeks that sap man and beast.
The thought of a running stream or rolling tide is almost enough to sustain us until the next thunderstorm.
Here in the Piedmont, August is our rainiest month with plenty of thunderstorms. But in between, the dog days have their way. The weather forecast is always “hot, humid, with a chance of afternoon or evening thunderstorms.”
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
A cool stream, a bit of ocean spray is what the doctor ordered. Soon enough the weather will cool just a bit and we can trade thunderstorm watches for tropical storm predictions.
Here’s to lazy days and beachcombing.
