Beach time!

We went to the beach, again. Another wonderful
Big Rideau holds some big boats
hot August day. The day before they'd had the Regatta. The garbage cans were dressed up.
The place was incredibly clean. It was wonderful.

I prefer a canoe, myself!
We could hear the boats, but did bother visiting this year. I'd seen it last year.
It must cost a bundle

It's a big community of people camping over the weekend
They must pack for days!
An incongruous picture of life on the lake

By the time we visited, things were back to normal, with the loons bothering the headless heron.
She only looks headless!
She was grooming!

Boats, birds, sun and fun.

Pretty quiet
Nothing better to a 3-yr.-old
than sand!

Oh, and the noise from those overpowered boats racing! I used to see them on Lake Okanagan when I was young. Don't miss them at all.
I miss going to the beach, though. There isn't really a beach near here, and with it turning out Lindy doesn't want to swim, we haven't gone looking for one. Besides, Dick tans but I burn, even with sunscreen.
So it's wonderful to look at your photos and remember when summer meant going to the beach.
Thanks!

I hate to be a pessimist but this fine summer fun is coming to an end.

I'm all for living in the moment!

Bats are always so cute looking, but man they can create havoc - and mess! Bat house eh? Like a pigeon coop or dovecot is it? Need to read up on those! YAM xx
