Last week we left off on the Cabot Trail, probably not far from MacKenzie Mountain, trying to get to the cabin before dark. We needn’t have worried. We were far enough north and close enough to the Summer Solstice that daylight lasted a good long while.

You probably know how this goes. You get up in the morning and at first everything seems okay, and then you realize everything isn’t okay. It started with the central air conditioning. It had been running all night, non-stop, and yet the house didn’t feel particularly cool. It refused to turn off when I lowered the temperature. Long story, short, an expert had to be called in to get it working again. Naturally this happens as the weather is heating up again.
