Today on camp we went to the beach at Parksville. While we were there at the beach there was a sand sculpting competition. The theme was “Heroes and Villans”, the sculptures were excellent, there was lots of detail in the creations. How they built them we will never know. The artists were very imaginative in their creations. It wasn’t just superheroes and Villans but it was basic things as well, such as cat and mouse, not because of example cat woman, but just as cats are seen as enemies of mice.
In Parksville it didn’t look like there were lots of shops, however near the beach front there were a range of stands that were selling donuts and ice lollies. The main part of the town wasn’t very far from the beach. A quick walk from the sculpting contest led to the main road along the front of the town. Along here was a range of food places were our groups went and ate, such as Pizza Hut, Tim Hortons and a Fish ‘n Chips shop. After the lunchtime meal, most of us then headed to the beach and had a splash about. As the water was so shallow we could swim out very far. After we had got out and had dried ourselves we headed to the bus to drive back to camp.
On our return we split into three groups for Masterchef, Survival and Fishing, more to follow on how we got on tomorrow….
