The tide was in, but there was still a bit of shoreline for us to explore.
Soon we were joined by a couple with their three young boys. The boys headed straight for the old tire swing which hangs from a tree leaning over the beach. Laughter rang out as they took turns swinging and pushing, cooperating among themselves to ensure they all had fun. Their smiles were contagious, and I asked their parents for permission to take photos for the paper (for a future column) and the blog.

I only had the point and shoot, with a fairly low battery which unfortunately affects the autofocus and also the speed for continuous action shots. And as is so often the case, the ones that were sharp were less well composed, and the ones that were well composed were slightly out of focus. However, shifting some of the latter to black and white helped emphasize the composition and de-emphasize the fuzz. These are two of my favourites:
