One afternoon, my son, younger grandson and I rode to Mission Bay Park in San Diego. Had I a better camera, I would have taken photos of some of the migrating birds, however a subject worthy of my little phone camera soon appeared.
Although I had seen children sailing their miniature boats on the ponds along the Champs-Élysées in Paris, I had never seen grown men with radio controlled miniature sailboats on a model boat pond.
The afternoon was perfect, sunny, breezy and cool, but not cold. We watched this miniature regatta for hours. One of the participants informed us the event would last for three days. It was a happy scene, and as most of these fellows appeared to be seniors, I thought what a wonderful way to spend your retirement days.
At the far end of the pond, a dad and child were running miniature motor boats.
