We had an invitation for another camping trip. But we have so many chores to do. We also have not much money (and its still few more days before payday, YIPES!) to go out far so we declined the invitation and just decided to stay home. We are really lucky to live in the town and be exposed to many events like the Armed Forces Day and Weston Air Day. Two events in one day! Whats nicer is that we can still do chores and just go back out when the activity that we like is on.
After cleaning the house we went to see a parade.
Afterwards this captured our attention. 3 massive canons on the beach! Awesome!
And the best part is that they fired it! Lots of times!!!!
My son is not impressed though. What he wants is to play on the sand only.
Men in uniform who are gracious for a photo op with my kid, yes please.
And my turn to have a photo op with those massive canons! OMG! Bad hair day much =P
We went home as my son is a bit cranky (see photo above). Its probably the heat. We went home to eat lunch and for him to rest. When it really got hot we went to the fountain and let him bathe. Free!
After the free bathing we then head back to the beach to see this spectacle (while eating food from our pantry)!
The Red Arrows swirling in the sky!
After a magical day planes and fountains we went home to batch cook and rest. But it was the longest day of the year! We cant waste it sitting at home right? So we head out again to the beach and this time its empty and everything is close and we have the place for ourselves! This time an ordinary moment, us walking to empty streets. No planes, not much people. Just ordinary walk at night but pretty marvelous as we are together.
And when we are ready to call it a day, we went home. Tired, exhausted. It is really a long day for us.
And we are glad that we live here.
Where the events that are as magical as these are free.
And we don't need to spend a lot to enjoy the day.
And ordinary nights are ours.
Simple walks and chats on the beach to settle us down.
See you again tomorrow.
