I Hope We Don’t Spontaneously Combust in the Next Few Days

I heard the “real feel” was going to go up to 109! God help us.

Here are some pictures from my recent trip down the mighty Nissequogue River, taken with a cheap, disposable underwater camera. I mostly tried to take pictures of birds, but this is my friend Kevin, who is human.

A bird.

Bird houses.

And me! I really love kayaking, I have to say. I’m ready to try more rivers. But I am slow slow slow. I entered a kayak race on the Hudson River shortly after I learned, and I not only came in dead last, I was something like ten minutes behind the person who came in second to last.

  1. Don’t know if you call it the “humidex” in New York but we do here in Ottawa. Today the humidex (the “feels like” temperature) was 45C (113F). Luckily, our city buses are air conditioned — I’m on the bus about 3 hours a day!
