I visited a week ago one of my favorite spots near Mikkeli in eastern Finland. While the lake water looks tempting, it’s pretty cold to take a dip. Water temperatures in this part of the world reach their zenith (about 75F/24C) at the end of July/early August and then begin to drop abruptly to temperatures where you’re flirting with hypothermia.
For those of you who have got to know me through this blog, know that I love this time of the season. It’s just like that famous song by the Zombies:
It’s the time of the season
When the love runs high
In this time, give it to me easy
And let me try
With pleasured hands
To take you and the sun to
To show you every one
It’s the time of the season for loving…
In fall skies are restless and on fire.
