|Castle Repo won the best overall|
|It is difficult to see this one, but it is an archaeological dig, complete |
with skulls, bones, a treasure chest and shovels.
|Since the pics display so small here, you can't see the jersey|
for Favre in the back. You sports fans will get it!
|Master sandcastle builders in the making! These boys |
won the junior division! Great job, guys!
On the way home I decided to swing by Seal Beach to see if there were any kites still in the air. As I got to Huntington Beach, I found myself slipping out from under the overcast skies to clear blue skies. When I got to Seal Beach there were still a few kites in the air and I saw some HUGE kites on the sand. I'll bet they were wonderful to see in the sky. I was too lazy to try to find parking and walk down to get some pics. And I was worried that if I did manage to find parking and get down there, by the time I did, the kites that were still flying would have been reeled in and put to bed already. But, the little taste I did get driving by made me realize I need to make sure to watch for and get to the next Japan America Kite Festival!
So, my friends, my next planned day trip will be to the Via Arte Italian Chalk Paintings in Bakersfield. Hopefully, I'll have a little something more to share on that soon! Another upcoming day trip I have in mind is a trek to the Kinetic Sculpture Race. Now there's something you don't see everyday! I hope you'll stay tuned and come along to see what I find!
I'd love to hear about some of the interesting or unusual events in your neck of the woods if you'd care to share!
