Easter 2016
Well, the sun shone as the Four Bates Beach bunnies hid their chocolately Easter eggs. The 4 bunnies - aka Ashley Bates, Cayley McCandless, Louisa Bates & George Bates had to deftly place the eggs as they kept an ever watchful eye on old Elmer Fudd aka Harold Bates who was trying in vain to scoop up a wascally rabbit in a rather large landing net!! A good time was enjoyed by all.  After the hunt the Bates Family & friends enjoyed a pancake breakfast. The next event is the traditional Pancake Breakfast on the May long week-end. See everybody there!
