This seems to be the hottest month. John once had the theory that being near the ocean would keep us cool. However, that does not take into account the fact that during the summer months the waters of the ocean get as warm as the temperature on land, so there is no cool moisture in the air to bring the temperatures down! Our usual plan is to be quite a distance north to avoid the heat which we are feeling now. That was not possible this summer because our daughter, her husband and child are living here and their second child is due any day now.
