|Canoes For Rent|
I decided to join a blog challenge: The Ultimate Blog Challenge. Basically, it requires you to post 31 times in the month of August. The posts don't have to be daily. Two or three posts in one day count as long they meet the minimum of 100 words. That shouldn't be too difficult, right?

Summers in Minnesota are often hot and humid. For the most part, it's tolerable. When I decided to bike to Minnehaha Falls* today, eighty-five degrees didn't seem that bad. However, I didn't realize just how humid it was. By the time I reached Lake Nokomis, I was drenched in sweat, which rarely happens.
*I will get that photo of the "Song of Hiawatha" sculpture. It may kill me but I will get it, dammit.
I decided to rest for a bit at a picnic table at one of Lake Nokomis's two beaches. Nokomis isn't heavily used compared to Lake Calhoun or Lake Harriet to the west but there were still about 30 or 40 people swimming, barbecuing, and lounging around. The lifeguard watched from her perch while a little white dog yapped at passersby and a lone seagull flew overhead. I really wanted to take an overview photo of the beach but I'm uncomfortable putting strangers' pictures on the internet so I chose not to. It feels like I'm violating their privacy. And that's how today's boat theme came to be. :-)
