For those of you who do not live in the Ottawa area, it is fair to say last week was freakin' hot. Hot as Hades comes to mind. Our house only has a/c in the bedroom, which has been enough to keep us from sweating to death. Last Friday, a particularly warm day, we had a house showing at noon. For some stupid reason, I got it into my head that this would be an amazing time to go to Conroy Pit. We meet our beloved cousin Emma there. I think this is the slowest walk we have every had at the pit. Lee tried to only walk in the shade of the trees, brush and when desperate in our shadows (which were in front of us so we kept kicking her accidentally). We kept is slow and steady, had lots of water and breaks and even though it was hot, I think we were all safe in the end. Thankfully so far this week it has been cooler!
