Driving back this morning from my early walk with Kona at Koeneman Park, this mother deer and speckled fawn walked across the road in front of us. Luckily we were in the car because Kona, of course, freaked out with an eruption of frantic barking and could not be calmed down. The deer just looked at us, pondered the barking, then decided it might be better to move on.
I am happy to report that the Fraser River has retreated a bit and is no longer covering our road. The extreme heat warning has ended and we woke up to more normal temperatures this morning (17°C, 62°F). We are much relieved and would be more so if we would get some rain without lightning.
