 Well, SUMMER IS HERE , grass goes brown, water restrictions phase 1 still in place. Weather is now in the mid 20’s C and folks off the Rhapsody of the Seas in port today are wearing sun hats, shorts and sandals. Will continue at least into end of next week.

Well we just celebrated Canada Day on July 1, 2010 and the Queen and Prince Philip were in Ottawa to help us celebrate.

They also were in Halifax to commemorate the Canadian Navy’s Centennial (100 years).

Our weather though for those on a cruise to Alaska was in the cool side with temperatures running around 12C (53F) to 20C (68F) at times. Not our average warm Spring or Summer but the good news is that July is looking to be in the mid 20’s C (68F – 75F).

So for some folks looks like they were being prepared for Alaska type weather but overall it is still nice but cool and overcast at times or breaks of sun.

On the other side of the world (Zante, Greece) see picture ….., look at Tina’s Cruising to see where she is taking her holiday.

now that must be true summer weather. Air fare for some of us though would be expensive.
