Today I woke up to a great deal of that ‘romantic fog‘ I wrote about yesterday! Rain too. It’s an extremely wet day. The air is filled with humidity.
What a difference to yesterday! The ferry connection between Millidgeville and the Kingston peninsula opened up yesterday … they could probably have started earlier because the Kennebecasis River has been free of ice for quite some time now.
We took a ride up on the peninsula. I was hoping to see some birds … eagles even, but did not see one bird! I kid you not!
I took this picture of Kennebecasis River from Chapel Grove. The other day, I wrote about Kennebec River in Maine. The two names sound similar, and my husband who has worked with Indian languages tells me that Kennebecasis is a diminutive … «little long water» or some such, originally ‘long tidal water’.
A post like this can’t be of any interest to anyone but [possibly] myself. LOL It’s just one of those mornings when I really wanted to write but didn’t have a topic. Nothing in the WP blog appealed to me today. Someone had suggested there, to just take any of your photos and write a story about it. Guess I could do that … I have a photo from the very same Kingston peninsula, that was taken two summers ago, and I’ll never forget the evening it was taken!
To make this more understandable to people I must state that I don’t handle heat very well. In fact, I can’t handle it at all! Earlier on this day … June 24, 2009, we’d been downtown. It was just an ordinary day. Went in to Staples to get some minor items … got out of there about fifteen minutes later, and I got a shock! Getting out of the store, it felt like someone had thrown a thick, wet and HOT blanket over me! It was brutal and at that time I had no idea it cold get this hot here in Saint John! After all … the city is right at the ocean! This heat-wave hung around for I don’t know how long… That first evening, we just couldn’t stay in the apartment so we drove up there … at least during the ferry ride I got a little relief.
When we got up on the peninsula, it was much worse. We do have a/c in the car, but now when I look at this picture I can still remember how I felt. Absolutely nothing was stirring …. the air was standing completely still and it was just hot, hot … HOT!
