Weekend in Parksville
After spending weekend in beautiful Parksville, yield of photos is enough for the whole blog post. Or two. Let's break it by parts, so it's easier to digest. First, there is this annual sand sculpting competition. Here are samples of these amazing creations by the artists from all over the world.
Very cute one, with title to match
So is this... see the ear? :)
Something about this one, "On the final note..." Was returning to it a few times, to see it again.
This one won first prize. Well deserved!
In the groove :)
OK, moving on - Community Park, beach volleyball:
Nice beach with a cozy boardwalk. A lot of summer fun for families. And look at those vistas!
At the end of the second day we were treated to the spectacular sunset. Same beach, same boardwalk, same vistas.
The sun is setting
...and it's down
Is this total serenity or what?
Some romance of course - such setting just calls for it!
Next day, Rathtrevor Beach - what trip to Parksville can omit that treasure?
This majestic Bald Eagle felt particularly royal that day, sitting in the crown of the sun rays
And, to finish, forest trails along the beach:
