White Rock Sea Festival '08

This year, for the first time in probably twenty years, the WR Sandcastle Competition was resurrected. There weren't many builders but it surely was great to see the activity again. The beach was awash in holidayers enjoying everything about the blue sky sunny day.

A friend and I walked among the throngs as the tide seeped out and caught some of the action at the bandshell by the white rock then took in the goofy 'Waiter's Race' on the street outside the Station museum. Our best vantage point was from a cafe patio so, since we were there, we had to have a beer to quench our thirst before heading the long steep climb up Martin St.

Another new-to-me item this year
were the banners strung on the
posts the length of the Pier. Every
province was represented and
front and centre was
Saskatchewan's flag
as you can see in the first photo.
