Underwater fun

Aren't they absolutely, positively gorgeous?

I have so much fun with my Olympus Stylus Tough camera! Waterproof to 12 feet,it also survives drops on land of about 10 feet. When I first got it, for fun I passed it to my brother and let it slip to the floor. We laughed so much we did it in front of his wife and kids. I literally fell on the floor laughing. I repeated it a few times after that but it started to lose its lustre. Not everybody found it quite as funny as I did.

Pictured above are Alex and his cousins Patricia and James (my niece and nephew).  Rob snapped the photo yesterday when we were all cooling off in the pool.  Visiting Brenda, Bill and James for  dinner celebrating Patricia's short return to Ontario.

With this post I am breaking an unwritten rule of mine not to publish faces of friends and family, but I can't resist!  Those three above look so graceful and full of ease.  The effervescence of youth.  Oh, summer days....

This week will mark the first of September!!!!

I am joining the chorus, "I can't believe next week it's already 'back to school'".

They're lovely, Diane! I'm so impressed by the pic. I am soooooooooooooo sad that I've no working camera. It's like an appendage is missing. Until Julie the Cat sells her cheesy memoirs, though....
