I'm a People Watcher.
More so when someone needs to shop. (I don't like shopping.)
Or when we're at an Amusement Park. (I am not a fan of rides.)
So when the kiddos were riding the Roller coaster for the 3rd time,
I sat on a bench..... and people watched.
People are fascinating.
And sweet and comical....all rolled into one.
I saw these 2 carrying this massive stuffed Penguin around the park all afternoon.
I had to take a photo.
As they walked by I heard one muttering...
Win prizes like this at the games and get us to carry it around all day!".
At the Beach last week coming in from a swim, I happened to notice a tiny car.
With a canoe strapped to the top.
It parked and out piled 1,2,3,4,5,.....6! people.
Looked as though dad had thought it would be fun to canoe with his boys for 20 minutes in the beautiful summer evening.
After about 15 minutes of designating seating for all the boys, he carefully (and cautiously) climbed into the ever-lowering canoe, and off they paddled.
Taking on quite a bit of water as they sat so low.
Then across the way at the next table was a young couple.
I guess they threw caution to the wind that night- in a few areas.
They broke the "No Dog" Beach rule,
the "No Alcohol" Beach rule,
and the young man broke the (unwritten but common sense) Beach rule about swimwear.
(Maybe dont' ask about that one, but use imagination...a bit.)
After leaving their empty and full beer cans strewn...they took off for a swim.
At least they left the dog tied up to guard the rest of their beer.
There were several more "situations"....which I dare not show.
And even some I dared not photograph.
People are wonderful.
And then all this people watching makes me wonder....
Who is sitting on a bench out there
- watching me?
