While we were visiting the kids...
the storm clouds began to gather and I felt a bit hopeful that there would be some interesting weather.
Some of my favorite Okanagan memories when we camped there for 14 years included the summer storms. They rush in with blustery winds and dark storm clouds and they almost always include thunder and lightening.
I wasn't disappointed.
The beach cleared and since
our the kids trailer was right next to the beach we stayed to watch the storm roll in.
The sky was beautiful.
And then we ran for cover.
It poured hard and thundered and lightened for a few minutes and then it was all over.
In the meantime..
the little ones were quite happy to hunker down for the few minutes.
It wasn't long and we were back at the beach.
It took the rest of the campers awhile to come out of hiding and that was just fine by us.
It is a rare day for the beach to be empty at this beautiful campsite.
Soon there was a competitive game of hot potato in the water.
I laughed watching the imagination of the young ones tossing that ball quickly.
Everyone loves a good beach...
