"Sunny" California Swim Meet
"June Gloom" was lasting into July in California when we were there, to bring grandson Locke home from Texas and to watch him and his sister Lia compete in a swim meet. Above, Lia and friend are ready to swim, despite what felt like cold weather to us! In the next picture, Lia is poised on the diving platform, ready for a heat. After each event, the tradition is for the children to get a treat, and so above Lia wrapped up in a yellow towel is clutching the money Mom has just given her for hers.
Below, Locke is about to swim in his first relay.
And here, Locke and his friend are enjoying a sweet treat after their heat.
At right, Locke has just earned a blue ribbon for his winning his heat with his favored and best stroke, the breast stroke. Below, a proud Dad congratulates Locke!
