Halfway on the trail to Morte Lake (where our dog loves to swim)
is Little Morte Lake, a bit of which can be seen through the trees.
There are terrible fires and a heat wave in California. Southern
British Columbia was hit by a severe wind storm yesterday and today
they have smoke from the fires in the US. But the weather on Quadra
Island has been unbelievably nice. Time to count one's blessings.
I hope things get better to the south.
