Even More Summer Adventures - Another Catchup Post



 Friday evening I left Beatrice's and headed further West on the 401.  Just a short drive away was Cobourg and Bonnie's house.  Since I was in the general area, I decided to see if Bonnie was up for a visit and she said to come on down, and that the Sandcastle Festival was on and the Summer Sidewalk Sale.

This booth was not only doing face painting but full body painting!

Saturday morning we started the morning with breakfast out at one of Bonnie and Blair's favourite spots before checking out the bustling sidewalk sales.  Surprisingly Blair was the only one who walked away with a purchase.

After an afternoon of hard work, stitching and watching movies Bonnie and I headed back out to the beach to check out the finished Sandcastles.  There was a mixture of Armatures and Professional Sandcastle builders and I have to say the armature work was quite impressive!

Professional Sandcastles





Amateur Sandcastles








Sunday was a little more stitching, then time for me to head back home.
