With neither Cuppa nor Anvilcloud feeling especially perky lately but still wanting to get out a bit, we have found ourselves sitting in the park munching sandwiches on a number of occasions lately. All we have to do is drive the short distance, haul our chairs into the shade and sit a spell. Since the weather has been almost perfect, that's what we have been doing.
Our view is represented by the three pictures below. The first looks upriver, the second downriver, and the third across the river. In the third, you also see a pontoon boat. There are quite a few used locally as well as on the two, old canal systems in Eastern Ontario: the Trent and the Rideau. They aren't speedboats but, being flat-bottomed, are relatively comfortable for families to putt around in.
Here is Cuppa enjoying the view sitting on one of our roll-up camp chairs with her feet resting on our little cooler. Naturally, I am usually found at her side, but I moved my stuff out of the way for the sake of the photo.
We spent some time at the park on Fathers Day before taking in the grandkids' swimming lessons and then being treated to a bbq at their place.
The boy isn't totally comfortable in the water yet, but he's off to a good start. You can see a smile on her face at she kicks those feet.
While waiting for supper. she played on Daddy's Playbook as he looked on intently whilst munching a small bowl of chips.
Just who was this person taking up space on Fathers Day?
