Heat wave continues

Today it is 36 degrees in the shade and the heat wave is forecasted to continue.

I was at the cabin last weekend to begin work building a new boat house.  It was very hot work indeed. I am using telegraph posts for the frame work, which I had to drag down to the lake.

I have decided that instead of pulling down the old boat-house and building a new one, I will build the new boat-house inside the old one and use the old roof.

The water in the lake is very low at the moment, so it was easy to build the foundation using the telegraph posts. I am also using telegraph posts for the main roof supports.

When I was fishing on Saturday evening, there was a Beaver swimming around in the lake.  Unfortunately this is the best picture I could get.

I had sweated a lot while working, so decided to was my clothes on Sunday.

I had no pegs to hang the clothes on a line, so I made some.  I cut some pieces of Bird Cherry, about 10cms long.  I bound some dental floss around one end and the split the twigs with my knife

They worked very well.
