Yesterday [ Sunday ] the sky was clouded but it was warm and a perfect day for the outdoors. We went to the dam and spend a lovely day swimming and kayakking. This is our son Nathan enjoying the day Smile
Thanx to everyone for commenting and voting on the Farm Dam - I was surprised by the reaction Smile
Have a brilliant week Smile

A nice happy picture of a very happy Nathan thoroughly enjoying himself Herman, just one point, he should be wearing a PFD (Personal Floating Device) such is mandatory here in Canada.
