  1. Splashing in the water is a great way to stay cool; I’ll be going a bit slower for my 5K run today at 6pm, as I expect the pavement to still be hot from the 32C heat during the day.

  2. Oh the joy of a dog running through water and on the beach! They don’t even have to like the water, they just love the sand and wind! This shot says so much as well as your lovely haiku! Thank you, Xenia, for submitting to Sunday Stills!
