Walk on the beach

Sometimes a walk on the beach, a good sunset and a surprise are all you need to put your spirits in the place they should be.

I met with a friend the other day and she and I talked about the things going on in our lives.

Everyday we have the choice to be happy, make the best of things and keep trying. Or give up and be miserable.

I choose happy. So I took a drive and traveled over to the beach for a nice long walk. I watched the sun set and create a perfect and beautiful ending to my day.

Here are some images I took with my phone.

Walking over toward the gorgeous Hotel del Coronado, I was greeted with the most wonderful surprise!

The San Castle Man was hard at work that evening creating masterpieces.

Spectacular aren’t they? Just like we are.

All we have to do is smile, keep trying and remember that no matter what we try to do or accomplish, although it won’t be easy, quick or free, the effort will be worth it.

U.S. Open Sand Castle Competition

Have you heard? The U.S. Open Sand Castle Competition is this weekend in Imperial Beach, CA.

The Sand Castle dance on Friday, July 22nd kicks everything off in style and benefits the Imperial Beach Boys and Girls Club.

On Saturday, the Kids-N-Kastles competition is held along with a huge street festival filled with music, food and arts n’ crafts.

Sunday, July 24th is the main event. Professionals and amateurs come from all over to carve these magnificent ‘castles’ out of sand. Vying for the title of Master’s Champion, the sand castle building gets going at 9:00 am and goes until 2:00 pm. The castles are judged and the winner announced. These beauties are a sight to behold, but get there early because the tide will wash them away just a few hours later.
