Walk to the Corso - 1

Let's go to the Corso. The Corso is the 'parade of floats' that is a big part of the Lemon Festival. I've never been before and didn't intend going this year but it was a lovely day and I had a feeling you might like to come along.

Parking is hopeless on Corso days so we've had to park a long way away and now we are walking by the sea to get to the Parade. This little girl threw stone after stone into the sea - quite big stones for a small child.

Did you throw stones into the sea or a river or a lake when you were a child?

Do come back tomorrow - we'll continue our walk along the seafront - until we reach the Corso and then we'll have fun.


  1. Do you know how much money those smooth rocks will bring in NYC?

    I saw a high-end furniture store selling smooth river rocks for $10/small bag.

    That said, I was walking down the street the other day and saw a smooth piece of rock on the street. I picked it up and pocketed it. :-)

  2. This looks perfect for skimming stones. How many ripples can you make? great shot. The water looks oh so inviting.

  3. Someone just collected a dog from me - just got back from a holiday to Boston. She just adored it.

    Oh, that's great. I would love to hear what she enjoyed most (and least, of course, that's important too). If you can, and if it's alright with you (you may say no so please don't feel obligated), would you kindly send her my link. If she's been to any of the sites I've featured so far, it'd be wonderful to hear her opinion. :)

    (BTW, I wish the North Atlantic looked like that in winter!)

  4. I didnt grow up near a sea or ocean. We would skip rocks in the lake. Does that count?

  5. What a fun and happy looking picture. I looked at all your blogs and read many touching stories. We have 3 dogs at present--lovely. MB

  6. Yes, I did throw stones. What fun we had doing that on lazy summer days by a pond!

  7. Watching children by a body of water is always great fun!
