Family Day at St. Malo Beach
Yesterday, we woke up earlier than we should on a Saturday morning, got the boys (all five of them), ready and headed to the beach. After all it was going to be another hot day in Winnipeg. It was also Manuel’s, our Mexican International student, last hurrah as he is leaving for Mexico tomorrow.
The day did not disappoint. A hot one it was indeed! Our water supply was depleted within an hour and we thirsted for more.
We had a great time playing in the dirty-man-made-excuse-for-a-beach lake. Don’t get me wrong, for what it’s worth, St. Malo is one of the best family beaches in Manitoba. Grand Beach is the Province’s best summer hot spot but what it really is is a stage for posers. The guy who thinks he has the best pecs on the beach, the chick whose bikini is so small that it looks as though she is not wearing anything, the other guy in the speedo who thinks he’s the hottest man on the beach. My family and I can’t compete with that.
We played a game of bocce ball and Mikhail and Kenyan showed us up even though it was their first time playing. Kids these days…
Here are some pics of today’s beach day.
