Going to the Beach
Building a Sand-Castle
Volleyball Camp on the Beach
Today in Penticton it is full summer. It starts out in the early morning at 15 degrees C and rises by about 2 degrees an hour, to reach 33 degrees by late afternoon. That is an amazing 18 degree rise! At the beach, it is perfect. Blue sky, warm sun, no wind. People still stagger from their cars with an enormous amount of gear to end up doing almost nothing. But wait a minute! There is a Summer Volleyball Camp in progress. The young ones are practicing on the beach, and the older ones learning the moves on the courts behind. There is movement after all! Even the sand-castle is getting taller! Wait another minute! Here comes a bevy of six young mothers jogging with their baby-carriages in front of them! and some cyclists! and some old people in wheel-chairs! The beach is quite busy. The only group missing is the 20 some year olds. They aren't here yet because they were up late partying the night before maybe....
