Putting On A Happy Face In Ocean Park

PEOPLE PUT ON THEIR HAPPY faces at the Ocean Park Day celebrations last Saturday. The day before had been summery, warm and muggy. But since the rain tends to make an appearance most years at the annual event, locals were prepared not to be deterred from having a good time.

Sometimes that included putting umbrellas over buggies ...

and discovering festive wonders under cover of tents.

The party atmosphere was topped with a little magic. Everyone seemed to be having a marvelous time despite the drops ...

knowing that the sun, as it always does, would eventually shine.

  4. Oh, I love events like this and I agree with Carver, you've captured it so well with camera and narrative! And I guess in our part of the world, we just learn to live with the gray and the wet!!! Definitely a fun way to spend a day!! Have a great week!


  5. The smiley face on the balloon always makes me smile - whatever the weather.

  6. Glad you had fun. Nothing like a smiley face in the midst of rain to make you feel better.

  7. Everyone is so well prepared for the rain! That’s the spirit: we will have fun no matter what weather condition.

  8. You begin and end this post with a great big smile and I, for one, love that! Ocean Park is a captivating place, and with the added bonus of magic tricks and a party atmosphere, there's no way a little rain is going to spoil the wonder. True to Penelope's character, you lead the way in positive thinking, Maria.
