The Neptune Festival



We had the joy of spending a lovely evening with T.J. and Shannon Logsdon as we headed to the annual Neptune Festival. The festival commemorates the tourist giving our beach back! The celebration includes yummy food, live music, arts and crafts, amazing sandsculpting competition, volleyball/wrestling/surfing tournament, and fireworks. Last year, Don and I went with the Thomas' and attempted to see the sandsculpting and we walked for 25 blocks or so and still no sign of the castles. We ended up just sitting on the beach in time to watch the fireworks. Now, being experienced Neptune Festival goers, we asked around to see where the sculpters were. We found them with ease this year and were amazed at the artwork! We raced down the rest of the boardwalk to get some ice cream and to see the world record sandsculpture at 31st Street. Unfortunately, by the time we got there, it was too dark to get a great picture. However, we did get one in front of the sign!!

Okay, T.J.! I must explain before you get huffy! I did not realize this argument was developing on your blog when posting. I was being rushed by the King-of-the-Computer (Don-o) who needed to get working on his endless list of to-do's for seminary. I was unable to completely post this slide show. I am going to give a little commentary, as you did, and give you the credit for spending a whole evening with the HINES'. Hold your horses Teeg!
