Threadville Mysteries by Janet Bolin
It's almost officially summer, and the days can be hot, and many of us love beaches and water.
Threadville is on the shore of Lake Erie. The Elderberry River flows
behind my apartment and machine embroidery shop, In Stitches.
I often walk my dogs, Sally-Forth and Tally-Ho, along the riverside trail or on the beaches. Sometimes I take my kayak way up the river, turn around, and let the lazy current take me back home. When the water's warm enough, I'll venture into it from one of Threadville's wonderful beaches.
Whatever I do around water, I'm careful.
Along with some of my friends, I'm a volunteer firefighter. We fight fires, but we're also among the first responders to other emergencies, and we're often called upon to rescue swimmers and boaters.
Be careful out there. In boats, wear a life jacket. Swim only when and where it's safe. Wear sunscreen and a hat. Drink plenty of water.
Our fire department is always willing to help, but we'd rather see everyone have a fun and safe summer.
What are some of the things that you and your family and friends do to enjoy summer?Any safety tips?
