Parksville Sandcastle Competition

On Sunday we drove out to [tag]Parksville[/tag], which is about a 2 hour drive from Colwood, each way. We went to the Parksville Beach Festival (or Sandcastle Competition) which featured [tag]sand castles[/tag] designed and created by professionals. I’m not sure what it takes to become a professional, but the sandcastles looked great! Some of the pictures that I took are below, and you can see more (and better) pictures on Dave’s post.

I honestly don’t know how the judges make their decisions on which entries win the competition, because most of them were really impressive. There were three team entries, and a bunch of single entries. Each team had a total of 23 hours over 3 days. Parksville’s Sandcastle Competition has been a tradition since 1982, and seems to be a popular event.

Some of the pictures are a bit blurry because I had my camera in manual focus mode, and I thought it was in automatic so I didn’t bother focusing. Sigh. Oh well, some of them still turned out, and the other ones I can live without.
