Neptune Festival

Let me first say...I love living near the beach!!! Even though we didn't go much this summer due to my hubby's foot injuries, I am trying to make up for it.

One of my good friends, Sandy and I went to Grandview Beach on Thursday. It's a very secluded beach with no facilities, but a great place to look for shells and beach glass. We had a great time although I did get sunburned. It was such a nice the mid 70's with a breeze...I didn't put on sunblock until we had been there for an hour or two. I'm sure my dermatologist will not be pleased next week...haha.

Then yesterday, I went to the Neptune Festival at Virginia Beach. What great fun!!! This festival stretches about 25 blocks along the boardwalk at the beach. There were hundreds of arts and crafts vendors, of course all the great smelling food, a surfing tournament, professional volleyball tournament, fantastic music, and my favorite...the sand castle competition. People from all over the country sculpt BEAUTIFUL sand creations. Of course my favorite was the elephant. It looked so realistic and also reminded me of the University of Alabama's big win over Florida on Saturday!! ROLL TIDE!!
