Football on the Beach

Weeks ago, when plans were made, the last weekend of May seemed like a good weekend for a beach party. And while overcast skies are the norm for May and June mornings, lately the gray skies have been sticking around 24 hours. The temperature at the beach was around 60, but a strong onshore wind made it feel much colder.

Nevertheless, Troop 29 had its family beach party, and while the adults shivered around a blazing bonfire, with sweatshirts and blankets wrapped around them, the kids kept warm by playing football. Some of them, in shorts and t-shirts, seemed oblivious to the cold.
