Parksville Sandcastle Season Over

This past weekend marked the end of the month long sandcastle competition and display held every year by our good friends to the north in Parksville.

While I am sure their attendance has been affected by our bummer summer to a degree they still had over 75,000 visitors to the display as of last Saturday and they still had Sunday to go. Their attendance record of over 99,000 will likely still stand.

As always how anyone can take compacted sand and turn it into such delightful objects is a real mystery to me. Packing a pail with wet sand and making a castle pretty much tested the limits of my sand construction skills.

If you missed this years display the two photos above show you a couple of my favourites.
