Photo Essay: Beach Day

 

We visited Cedar Bay, as it’s known to many, Sunday afternoon. This Port Colborne/Lake Erie getaway is great for family picnics, beach get-togethers, volleyball, badminton, swimming, tanning, etc. etc. The water was inviting (though I didn’t go in, preferring to gaze from the knoll overlooking the beach),  and we found a shady spot not far from the beach volleyball courts where we noshed on sandwiches, salsa, Niagara peaches and more, sharing memories (gosh, we came here with our kids a couple decades+ ago, where did the time go?) and experiences. Was great to see so many young families/couples/singles enjoying the amenities on such an exceptional day! Hope to be back for more. (Photos by Joe Barkovich)
