Still Summer!/Our World

 Proud dad taking family photos

Two days ago, my husband and I took a road trip to Cobourg on the north side of Lake Ontario, always an interesting place to visit.  Saturday was very, VERY busy there, full of photo ops. It appeared many people were eking out as much summer as possible.  School starts here the day after Labour Day.

The above family found a small corner of beach to play and take photos and...

 Alligator meets shark

these kids found a  - for a few seconds - a place to splash and tease each other.

 Crowded!

Most of the beach looked like this.

 Three boats anchored a bit further out in the water

A few clever boat owners found a way to swim and enjoy each other away from the crowds.

Breakwater outside the harbour

And three boys rode their bikes to the breakwater to play.

We are getting down to the last days of summer and people are doing what they can to get a few days in before school starts.

Now, isn't that the way humans do??? Crowding up like that . . always causes me to wonder -

That first photo - of the "Proud Dad" looks like pure art - the kind that hangs in a gallery somewhere . . Awesome Stuff . . .

Kate said...

Definitely a busy place! The family photos will be treasured for a long time for that young family. Digital cameras certainly have transformed the whole photographic scene!

Pamela Gordon said...

Fun photos of a summer day. There is so much colour on the beach - love it! The photo of the boys on the breakwater is really nice.

Looks like everyone has headed to the beach, pretty much the same here at the moment. Way too many people!

Lowell said...

A great day and a great place making summer memories. Terrific shots of people have fun! I remember those summer days in Minnesota. We thought they'd never end. Hah! The crowded beach reminds me a bit of the Ft. Lauderdale beach during spring break!

Sandra said...

i love the breakwater shot best of all.. wow on the crowds..standing room only.. that is a really good photo of the daddy taking photos.

Indrani said...

Love the shots, so full of life and happiness.

Penelope Postcards said...

Oh, the umbrellas are fabulous! Looks like we are experiencing similar weather across the country. The same scenes are being played out on the West Coast. Everyone in my world seems to be squeezing out the last bits of what has been a beautiful summer.

TexWisGirl said...

the crowds would not be fun. love the colors, though.

George said...

You got some wonderful candid shots. I'm glad people are still enjoying summer while they can. We had a cool weekend here.

Vagabonde said...

This remind me of our family going to the Florida beaches when the girls were little. This summer has been soggy and dreary here, raining almost daily, so it has not been that pleasant, but it has been quiet. The beaches you show are very crowded but kids have much fun anyway. I hope you had a great summer so far.

Judy said...

That is a whole lot of people on that beach! I love the shot of the dad with a camera!

Everything Changes said...

I couldn't find the comment section on your other blog. I haven't been around for a while; did something change?

Malyss said...

I'm in love with your last shot! A perfect symbol for freedom, youth, summer and joy!Marvellous picture , really!

Chris Rohrer said...

School has started here already:( And I can only imagine the beaches right now.....I'd be doing the same thing:)

Oh, what fun, delightful captures, EG! I love seeing the kids enjoying themselves -- as well as the grown-ups! And beautiful water and skies! Just doesn't get any better! Thanks for sharing the end-of-summer fun!! Have a great week!

Pat Tillett said...

These photos are pure summer! Very nice. I've gone to some "raft" parties where there 20-30 boats "rafted" together.

Fun60 said...

I doubt the children notice the crowds, they are just having too much fun.

Beautiful day! Very nice series of shots! I especially admire the last one.

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Great photos! Feels like summer today!

lindaakacraftygardener said...

Cobourg is a beautiful spot to visit. I've done a post previously about the Cobourg beach (less crowded than yours) and this week I did a post about Nessie's in the downtown. :)

see you there! said...

Looks like folks were having fun. I particularly like that photo of the boys on the breakwater.

kelley jensen said...

summer in your world looks great.

Sandy Carlson said...

What fun photos! There is a beautiful peace at the beach like no place else.

Kay L. Davies said...

I love the alligator and shark, but the photo of the crowd makes me happy just to be at home, looking at your photos and enjoying them without all the fuss and bother.

Goodness, that does look awfully crowded. School here started this week, so our summer is unofficially over.
