We're beginning to see how precious the summer season is here in Edmonton compared to what summers were like back in Quebec.  When summer hit Quebec you knew it would settle in hot and humid for a good long while.  Weather here seems unpredictable and changes quickly.  We're past the midpoint now of July and it still doesn't quite feel like summer has arrived.  The mosquitoes are here in full force but the days are coolish and it seems rare to get a day where it doesn't cloud over and rain eventually.  We're not complaining though.  Quebec summers were starting to be unbearable for us with the high temps and humidity.

The weather mostly cooperated for our week of vacation and after our geocaching misadventures of Monday, we were able to get out and do a few things.

The Muttart Conservatory on Tuesday...

Fort Edmonton Park with Jen and Rob on Wednesday...

We're just slowly adapting to this new type of summer and embracing each good day that we have.

Until next time...

  1. Great floral photos!! I'll get there yet! ;) Yes our weather sucks!!! This is our second crummy summer in a row and all I can say is we had better not get a repeat of last winter. (sigh) Today feels like late September! :(

  2. Looks like you're having a great time in spite of the cruddy weather! This summer has been awfully wet, but my first summer in northern AB three years ago was so stinkin' hot...and we lived in a rented trailer that would heat up like an oven...with no screens on the windows...near a we would wake up covered with mosquito bites...and we had no car and lived outside of city limits and had to walk in 37 degree weather...LOL so I am NOT complaining about the rain! :) tee hee!

  3. Nice pictures Susan. But I have to wonder. Where is your DBNL? This type of weather (even though wet of late) is a heck a lot better than than the hellish 50C (with humidity) in the east.


Thanks! I appreciate your comments.
