Parksville Beach

Our next stop was the beach at Parksville.   We watched as a kite master skillfully maneuvered this kite into loop-de-loop in both directions.   Impressive!

I've always wanted to go to see sand sculptures and we were lucky to be in the area just after a sand sculpture contest.
The detail on these were something to see.  Wonderful.  We were each given a token to place in the box by the sculpture we liked the most.

See the shark fin to the lower right?  That man hanging out of the tub had a worried look on his face.

The donkey with the lion skin on its back wasn't disguised enough for the wolf.
I had never heard of some of these fairy tales.

This one was so funny.

Look at the detail on the side.

This was my favorite.  Just look at all the detail.  Click on it to enlarge.

This was Nolan's favorite.
This was our friend's choice.

After checking out the sand sculptures, we listened to some free entertainment on the beach then walked out to the water.
I have never seen live sand dollars before but they were everywhere.  You couldn't walk without stepping on them.

I picked up a few souvenirs on the beach.  I was told the sand dollars were dead since they were turning black.

Once at home I bleached the sand dollars.  One has a few orange tinted areas.
