Cooled From the North

Had a spectacular day yesterday on a north shore beach. It was very hot and humid on PEI and where I was had a cool breeze from the ocean blowing for the whole day. Old friends, marvelous food, good music, a long hike, then swimming; spectacular and nothing less. My hiking partner broke his little toe during our beach walk but it didn't pain terribly.....until the evening. Then it started in earnest. He had to take ibuprophen. There was a great sunset that we enjoyed during dinner to top off the day perfectly. I have quite a few versions of the old standard up but who knows if any of them are still there. I think they're still reachable somehow..

We've had very hot and muggy weather for two days. It is dry now and will remain like that a few days and is then forecast to get hot and muggy again. It's still summerlike and that's good enough for me. Sometimes this time of year can feel like fall.

To celebrate I'm throwing out the song Summertime. There's the one we all know and here's a version of that is by Sam Cooke. The other song is by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince and not another version of the old standard....something completely different. My kids will probably like it.

Just so you know, he hasn't been part of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince for LONG TIME before he released Summertime. He just goes by his name Will Smith, and has since the mid 90s.

Never Mind. You were right the first time. This was released when Will and Jeff were still recording together. It was released under the DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince name, NOT the Will Smith Name according to Will's Wikipedia page. Sorry :)
