We made our own long weekend. Wow, a May heatwave! Some nights we were sweating like pigs, which finally forced us into the water. By the end of the weekend, the water was a normal July temperature.
Tons of dragonflies have wiped out the blackflies, and our end of the lake is very dry, so the mosquitoes are still light. But when we went to the marina this morning, our car was in the shade, and there was a cloud of moskies so thick, that we were swatting them for half an hour after we drove off. Haven't seen anything like that, since I was canoe portaging through swamps.
