On the last day of June we went to a Vancouver Canadians minor-league game, with fireworks. I seem to document such an expedition once a year, which is unsurprising as it’s a treat for the eyes.

I think anyone who savors the flavors of baseball might want to enlarge this pre-game warmup shot for a smile. The smoke is from the big barbecue pits out along the first-base line. You can rent these for a party, and I’d like to try that sometime.

The game was entertaining even though we took our just-turned-three daughter along, which wasn’t a huge success. Why on earth would a child that age pay attention to the game or the crowd when she had Mom and Dad pinned in place, both their laps available for continuous bouncing and squirming?

Thus the girls left early and I stayed with the boy for the fireworks. Minor-league baseball is really one of life’s sweeter pleasures.

And thus endeth the “Junepix” clean-out of last month’s photo folder.
