Days are getting longer, nights are less cold. Night skies at this time of year are spectacular. A recent conversation reminded me of past winter camping trips and, in particular, a trip that I did with a friend a few years ago.
I can’t believe it’s already six years since I visited Windscape Kite Festival in Swift Current.
To describe the midsummer day as sweltering would be an understatement. The thermometer had soared past 35° C shortly after noon. At 5:30 p.m. I’m slouched in one of two big wicker chairs on the porch of a 100-year-old log cabin.
