A really great long weekend, very hot and sunny. But the horseflies are out with a vengeance this year. You have half a chance if you are sitting, wrapped in towels, and holding a fly swatter. Then, when it was very hot, our entertainment was to swat the flies, and throw them in the water, to be snatched up by a fish. Like I said, it was very hot, and we were all huddled under a small umbrella.
These things are huge, and we killed a hundred of them. But when you are doing something, like getting out of the water, or windsurfing, they strike! And it feels like a big electric shock going through you! Usually, when they bite, you can whap them, but if you don't have a free hand, you are doomed. :(
