My little town has been a buzz of activity getting ready for the annual festival. Painting projects on street curbs, houses and lots of mad dashes to get construction projects finished. At my end of the street the old lighthouse was getting a facelift, it was two weeks of cement mixer right outside starting at 7am! But the finished product turned out very nice.
Here is what it used to be.
Then they started busting up rocks, and adding cement...
At first I thought they were adding stairs down to the ocean, and thought...thats not a good idea, but no.
Then they filled in the "moat" for what I thought was going to be planters, but no...
There are colored lights in the "waves" and they really made the background so they can have performances on the stage and not get splashed from high tide. They used this stage on Saturday night for their "night of culture" which turned out to be Karaoke! Great! Right outside my door!
Sunday was another boat parade, and in town was a food festival with games, like this one a "de-cobbing corn" race. (Im sure there is a real word, just could NOT think of it, schucking?)
By Monday I had had enough, and went to San Clemente for a couple nights. Wednesday night there was one last hooray in town and they partied and danced til the wee hours of the morning. So glad everyone had a good time, but made me realize... living in town, well is a little noisy. So, stay tuned, the adventure continues!
