As the northern hemisphere swelters through these blazing summer months, here on Whidbey Island we've been a little luckier. Several days ago there was some weather in the high 80's. But for the last few mornings it has been cool, shrouded in fog and mist. The lake shimmers with rising vapors, and the treetops are hidden. When it burns off later in the day, it generally stays in the mid 70's. But this morning,the horses were wearing their blankets! (but for some reason, not the new colt, in the pasture on the left).
