So we didn’t get up to the 30C we were supposed to reach yesterday. Personally I think it was due to the smoke and haze from Eastern Washington fires… But I don’t have any confirmation of that. Today and through the weekend though we have quite a bit more marine air so it’s going to cool off and there will be more fog in the morning.

That said. It’s still pretty hard to complain about getting up to 28C only a few days before the Fall officially begins.

If you haven’t listened to the Peak you may not know that there was a whale (or two, I’m not sure) frolicking right off of the breakwater at the Harbour Quay.

This photo was posted on Facebook. It was taken by Annette Clement. Great shot!
