Park Point Beach

The Beach


One of my summer bucket list items was to spend a day at Park Point Beach.  This past Sunday, we grabbed our swimsuits and towels, slathered on the sunscreen, packed a picnic lunch and headed to the beach.  The day was very warm with a few passing clouds.  There was a threat for isolated thunderstorms, but we checked the radar before we left the house and decided to take our chances.  We ended up having a perfect beach day.  No rain, lots of sun and a very light breeze.

*All photos were taken with my old Panasonic DMC-FZ8.  Mike recommended leaving my Canon DSLR at home to avoid potential damage from the sand.  Definitely good advice as we had sand on and in everything when we got home.

The kids wasted no time in getting started on building sand creations.

For the first time ever, Duluth has had 25 days during the month of July that have been in the 80’s (or 90’s).  If August is anything like July, we may have to head back to Park Point Beach.
