LinkStuff – Nice Weather Edition

by Mike Holman

Last weekend I took my kids to the beach at Ashbridges Bay. It was sunny and about 24 degrees Celsius which is pretty amazing for the end of September.

The waves were fairly large, which was a lot of fun for the kids and myself. The water wasn’t as warm as it had been during August, but we weren’t complaining.

As you can see from the picture, kite boarders were in abundance.
