Summer is off to a roaring start. The days are hot and the ground is parched. When it is like this, which is not very often really, it is nice to be near refreshing water. So, today, being one of those days, we went for a freshen-up at the Groynes.
The Groynes is a large recreational area and this time we selected a spot called the Birches (Kimahia). We joined the ducks enjoying the shade by the river. They had a lot to say about our visit. Thought we were quite ducky in fact.They suggested a cool dip in the river. We wanted to follow them but, unfortunately, the quality of the water is only fit for ducks. Poor ducks, having to suffer dirty water 😦Behind us, there was a lovely view through tree framed windows to Clearwater Golf Course and to the mountains beyond. Some of the mountains still had a little snow on them. You can see some of the golf course if you click on the photo to enlarge it. The mountains weren’t captured by my camera.I startled a rabbit when I took that photo. It startled me ,too, so we are even.
