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.
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.

hi I love the photo with children walking along the wall.
Enjoy last few days of summer.
Ah, yes, school. It won't be long now.
I love the alligator meets shark! Great examples of water fun!
Oh I LOVE this my childhood floods back to images of this beach empty about 5 in the morning walking with y Grandfather. It is a lovely place to visit but surely is crowded this time of year. LOVE you shots makes me want to jump in the car:) Hug B
Beautiful world and captures!
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.
Lovely to see the family enjoying summer time, your pictures are wonderful!
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 . . .
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!
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!
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!
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.
Love the shots, so full of life and happiness.
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.
the crowds would not be fun. love the colors, though.
You got some wonderful candid shots. I'm glad people are still enjoying summer while they can. We had a cool weekend here.
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.
That is a whole lot of people on that beach! I love the shot of the dad with a camera!
I couldn't find the comment section on your other blog. I haven't been around for a while; did something change?
I'm in love with your last shot! A perfect symbol for freedom, youth, summer and joy!Marvellous picture , really!
School has started here already:( And I can only imagine the beaches right now.....I'd be doing the same thing:)
Greetings from, RW & SK
I had no idea that Cobourg was so popular!
Know it well, but it`s too crowded now!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
love the first photo, precious.
wow, it was crowded. perfect for people wathcing.
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!
These photos are pure summer! Very nice. I've gone to some "raft" parties where there 20-30 boats "rafted" together.
I doubt the children notice the crowds, they are just having too much fun.
Fantastic shots of 'summer life' ~ lots of colors, great composition and creative! ~ thanks, carol, xo
It is certainly a busy place, great shots!
The beach does look crowded, I am glad they had good weather to enjoy the beach and boat rides. Great summertime photos.
Beautiful day! Very nice series of shots! I especially admire the last one.
Wow! I've never seen it so crowded. Glad people are taking advantage of the nice weather. :)
I like your storytelling approach to today's series of photos, EG. Busy!
Wow, that is one crowded beach. Love that last photograph.
Great photos! Feels like summer today!
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. :)
Looks like folks were having fun. I particularly like that photo of the boys on the breakwater.
summer in your world looks great.
What fun photos! There is a beautiful peace at the beach like no place else.
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.
