This weekend, some good friends had a birthday party at the beach for their son. The party started at the beach then moved on to a BBQ in their back yard.
It was a lot of fun and a great way to spend the afternoon. It was overcast and actually rained a couple of times during the day for perhaps a couple of minutes at a time, but that didn't stop any of the fun the kids and adults had at the beach and BBQ. If anything, the questionable weather meant the beach was less crowded than it usually is on a weekend in the summer, so our group could really spread out.
Here's a candid picture of Francine and I that was taken as we had first arrived and were setting up our stuff on the beach. That's Lake Ontario in the background, BTW, and the pier that leads up to the lift bridge between Hamilton and Burlington. Alexander was quite delighted when we got to run down to the bridge when it rose to let a couple of gigantic ships into Hamilton Harbour.
