On Labour Day weekend, with our daughter, her husband and our grandson, we headed up to Big Bay to check out the stone skipping beach on Georgian Bay. We had a great time, with both our grandson and his dad enjoying trying to skip rocks for an hour.
It was a grey day this time; the clouds or sun make all the difference in the water of Georgian Bay.
This beach is pretty unique around here, entirely made up of flat stones, almost all just the right size for stone skipping. The beach proudly proclaims itself the 'Stone Skipping Capital of Canada'.
Take a look at the endless supply of perfect stone skipping rocks!
Took dozens of pictures of course; here I managed to catch Jaxson with a stone still in mid-air.

Down at the end of the beach was a flock of seagulls, mostly sitting in the breeze and watching the bay.
And of course we walked out on the pier to see the crazy teenagers jump into that cold water. You wouldn't catch me doing it!
But I thought the pattern of bumpers hanging from the pier was interesting. It ended up being a great day outdoors in the fresh air, just what junior needed to wear off a little 4 year old energy!
