Giant Bubbles in the Park


During our afternoon walk, Mr. N and I meandered down to the river and were greeted with the sight of dozens of bubbles floating in the air. 

Occasionally, the bubble performers bring their giant bubble wands and create enormous bubbles during sunny afternoons. We’ve always missed their performances before so we paused to watch the bubbles float and melt away in the Indian Summer air. 

A toddler came running over, waving her hands in excitement and paused in front of a stream of iridescent bubbles. Entranced. It wasn’t just the children who delighted in the spectacle. Just about everyone who walked by paused for a glimpse and the reminder of pure joy and childhood.

Mr. N was briefly intrigued but then decided there were more other interesting things in the park like the geese and the Aussie that was illicitly playing fetch behind us twenty feet away off-leash. Little Dog was very good and held his sit stay despite bubbles popping by his head and the Aussie.

    How fun! I'm not sure Barley would have cared about bubbles for long, either, but she's always interested–and a little worried–when we see people flying kites at the lake.

    Some of those are so big they look like they might carry Mr. N away! We don't have bubble performances around here :/ They look quite pretty, especially in the late afternoon light.

    Yay, I get to look at the bubbles again! I've never seen a professional soap bubble blower before this. 🙂 I don't think we have those in Central Virginia, but if we did, my dogs would try to pop them all, it think! So cute, Mr. N.
