At last, the heat is here with daily temperatures between 25 - 30 degrees Celsius and no rain showers.
It is time to head for water and Birch Lake, hidden in the forest south-west of Caroline is an ideal location. That's exactly what a group of young people from a summer camp at Camp Caroline did on July 11, launching several canoes to ferry their camping equipment across the lake. It doesn't get much better than this.
