Dancing in the Summer Sun

Coronado Summer Concert 069

A summer evening concert in the park on the island of Coronado. The Navy Show Band entertains with big band tunes. A cool breeze blows off the ocean that is just blocks away. People come with their camp chairs, blankets, and coolers of food. And they dance!

You see cartwheels and ballet.

All ages are welcome.

Even the tiniest tyke can lead the conga line.

The band plays the final number. The music winds ups as the sun sets.

We head home with refreshed and happy hearts.

How about you? Where have you seen joy this season?

Linking up with Texture Tuesday, Wednesday Around the World, and Sweet Shot Tuesdays. Photo edited with Kim Klassen’s texture Shine.

I love Coronado! We were hoping to vacation in Laguna Niguel like we did last summer, and spend time in LaJolla and San Diego. It didn’t work out, so we’re here vacationing on our lovely Oregon Coast, with weather abut 20+ degrees cooler than we would have enjoyed in So. Cal!
