We are heading south!

It will be a slow journey, about 5 more weeks before we return home.  Today we made it to Comox, BC which is on the east coast just above Nanaimo where we will get onto a Ferry on Sunday and head to Vancouver.  We will relax here and enjoy some of the local things like, wine, beer, seafood, golf and festivals.’

We headed out today to see the sand sculpting in Parksville, about 40km south.  Traveling on the coast road we found a quaint little spot to have lunch, FishTales where you sat on the lawn at umbrella tables in the garden and enjoyed a traditional English fish n chips.  It was very good and what a fun stop.  You can’t find these spots on Yelp or the Interstate!

The Parksville Sand Sculpting was amazing and took place in this very nice park right on the beach.  There was lots going on and the sculptures were fantastic.

Sponsors sculpture, very cool

My favorite was the one that looked most sandcastle like.  The others followed the theme of this years event, Myths and Legends.  This is a qualifying event for the World Championships, whatever that is?

A mermaid and a castle, that is what I think of when I think sandcastles

PopCorn, Paul’s favorite

I didn’t get the reasoning behind this one but it was pretty cool and they had tiny figures on the ground that were pretty well done also.

And the others


The sculptures were very creative and the detail was so good, we would really have enjoyed watching the sculpturing but it was the week before. These will remain on display until the middle of August.  Not your made in the waves kind of sandcastles!
