There were people fishing right in the river. We realized that people could fish without a license on this weekend. We set up five chairs (to the right, above) and waited for Sha and the kids. The park was crowded, relatively speaking, but there was a lot of space between the family clusters, and no one group was overly large. It was pretty perfect, really.
They arrived with coffee and donuts (above). I set up the camera on the tripod with a 10 second delay and had JJ press the shutter and scoot back into the frame (below). When Sue and I had tried this the other day, neither of us made it back into the frame. It was a longer distance then, but it was still nice to have young legs available on this day.
I then set up the camera to take photos with an app from the phone so that no more scooting was required.
The orange theme continued when I opened the neatest gift. It is a long-sleeved hoodie made from lightweight material, which will be perfect to wear on summer mornings while offering me some protection from the biters.
That photo ↑↑ is partly comedy because I have scads of similar photos of me receiving shirts for Fathers Days, birthdays and Christmases. It got to be a bit of a joke, more so when we would look back in later years and see the theme repeated over and over. I haven't been gifted so many shirts lately, but it was fun to pick up the old theme.
I almost forgot to mention the card, below. Mustn't do that.
There was one other item: a drink holder thing to help keep my pop cool.

I don't need Google.

It was a grand hour or so. Come July, Sue and I will have been vaccinated for two weeks. The kids will be out of school for the summer. We should be able to see more of them without worrying, and rules will be looser too.
