Literally the sunniest July on record we had not one drop of rain. Our family had some glorious views both as a foursome and as a twosome. Dave and I had a getaway for two for the first time in 5 years. There were beach visits galore, swimming classes, deadlines, a wedding, and lots of lovely heat. It almost felt like summer was bottled up into a month, but at least we made the most of it this year.
