Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

When we were younger we would have water fights or run through sprinklers to cool off.  Now, many communities have added water features to their playgrounds.  These are a hit with children who love running through (and away from) the sprinklers, which shoot up when least expected.

A wait for the water to shoot out of the hose is rewarded.

Family and friends gathering in someone’s backyard usually includes outdoor games and sleeping in a tent.

The Fall Fair (Eastern Nova Scotia Exhibition) signals the end of summer.  It gives farmers, 4-H members and local growers an opportunity to show off the results of their work over the summer.   The amusement rides are always a part of the Fall Fair.

  1. Fun times at the watermark. This what Summer is all about. Beautiful photos that truly shows a happy and memorable day. I brought my son to Palm Beach in Galveston 2 weeks ago, we’ll be back this Friday for more. Summer is all about having a fun and more.

    • In Canada, where it can be a long winter, we really look forward to the coming of summer. Layers of heavy warm clothing start to come off and the freedom that comes from moving outdoors infects everyone.
