The UK is experiencing a rare thing, a hot summer!
I don't remember anything like it, motorbikes falling over because their side-stands have sunk into the hot tarmac, even the sea has warmed up more than usual in the shallows. I'm absolutely loving it!
We are rammed with more tourists from all over Britain and the world than I've ever seen. Everyone is happy, local business is booming, and the world is a much nicer place than the depths of winter.

I haven't cooked food inside for 3 weeks now, I just start a fire and barbeque my munch every day. My son lives in the house next door so he joins me and we cook outside in the sun. He plays rugby as a prop forward so eats lots of meat and his packed lunches for work for the last few weeks have all been BBQ'd the evening before lol.

Oh if only Britain was hot like this all year around it would be the best country in the world!


So, hot summer stories are all welcome, even memories of summers you loved in years past.
This is the hot summer stories thread for anyone interested...

I live where it feels like winter for 8 months of the year.

One summer we went to the Upper Peninsula. Which is basically Michigan and three of the great lakes.

I truly believe this place is one of the best kept secrets in the US. (Kid Rock gave us a hint and wrote a song that says "summertime in Northern Michigan" The drive up was several hours. We were an hour or so from our destination and there it was. The most gorgeous beach, breathtaking aqua water. No houses, and nothing manmade to obscure the view. It truly felt like paradise. I stopped the car got out and dipped my feet in the water. It felt like I was in Florida or the Caribbean (but better), certainly not up North! I could not get over the color of the water, the sky, the sand, the funny rocks. The sweet smell. If a place was ever perfect that would it.

It's so hot here in North Carolina that farmers are putting pans of water under their beds in order for their wives to take root. Now that's hot!

Another story, I've grown up at beaches all my life so naturally I joined the local surf rescue team and was a lifeguard for a couple of summers. It was the best job of my life, walking barefoot on the sand every day, girls a plenty lol, fantastic times.
I rescued a few people by kayak and jet ski but they weren't really in any danger because we'd spotted them before they were in real trouble. Curiously the one life I'd say I actually saved from drowning was when I was no longer a lifeguard years later and my friend's son was going under in strong waves. Man the adrenaline kicked in and you never forget the basics so I towed him back to shore...actually scared because at one point I was unsure I was going to make it, it was that rough.

I'd advise anyone young enough to join a surf rescue club, the shore based culture is amazing as well as the trusted friendships to be made...and yes it is a bit like Baywatch lol.

Hahaha! That's a good one

NC is inland isn't it, do you have lakes and rivers you can swim in locally? I could never live inland...my soul would die for sure!

cold. hot water bottle and despair. tepid reasoning and careless thoughts. A dire lament towards all things. futility. a dismal fugue, that colours everything with a rotten discomfort. bleak skies, stale wind and horrid yearnings.

it's the end of winter. or the middle. I give up wondering. just so dark cold.

what is it like... Hope?

My summer has been amazing!!
Since I am in Canada,I take full advantage of summer because the winters are really cold.

I went to a rib festival,a wine thing,I get out and fish at least once a week,planted a garden and I work on my tan.
I have my job figured out so I can work 1 week and then take a week off,work 1 week and then take a week off.

This is just the beginning...I haven't even gone camping yet.

My AC has run almost continually since I switched it on.

Gosh, what country do you live in?!
We had snow here in March, the first time for many years, it only lasted a couple of days.
Never really cold in my parts, just drizzle rain usually, not like Scotland, they get it bad some years, I couldn't live there, I'm a summer person...I love your username for that, we had a randon rain shower the other day and the smell of it landing on the hot ground was amazing.
I stood outside to get soaked and cool down, it was lovely.

Rib festival sounds amazing

...and your working hours do too! Canada is freezing in the winter though isn't it so I bet everyone loves it when that hot ball in the sky returns each year.
AC isn't really a thing here in private homes, it would normally only be needed for a month or so each year, same with snow chains for vehicles lol

My favorite summers were spent on Clark’s Island in Plymouth, MA (named after John Clark).

The boat rides over, no electricity, well water, fresh tomatoes from the gardens and blackberries galore. Running thru the paths, hanging out at Pulpit Rock.

The stories the seniors would tell us. It truly was a magical place.



Also spending a summer in Portsmouth NH with a childhood friend one Summer. Portsmouth is a very historical and artsy town. The summer plays at the outdoor theatre on the waterfront (Prescott Park).

Look at the first photo on this site, this is what I am talking about, glowing water!
This is the other side of the lake, and I think more populated but just as beautiful.

No way, I thought it never really got cold in Australia!
Only a few more months mate, it will be going downhill for us here soon again.

a reply to: KTemplar
Ah that sounds lovely! I'll be Googling that island as well now.
...I went to university at Plymouth UK, one of my favourite cities. I've chilled on the stone steps which the people boarded 'The Mayflower' many times with friends and a beer.

Ok I'm going to tell you another amazing amazing place. Blue Spring Park in Florida.
floridahikes.com...

That place has magic. There are legends in Florida about the fountain of youth. Most of the people go to Deleon park, but this place, Blue Springs, there is something in the water. I can't even explain it. It is the most refreshing, rejuvenating, peaceful, otherworldly water I have ever been in. What is even more bizarre, there are gators right there with you, and all kinds of creatures, but there is a bliss there that is hard to describe.

Tried to play Skyrim on the old xbox..

Too hot it said, made strange noises and crashed..

Tried putting a giant amethyst that belonged to a real witch on top of the console to eat some heat.. And a few frozen jars of strawberry jam.. got a couple of hours of game time..

The end.
