I highly recommend that you go see them one year. The sand sculptures are completed by the 4th of July so I always go in early July before any bad weather can ruin them.
I enjoy being by the water so I do spend several summer days at the canal. I find it very relaxing to sit by the water and watch the boats. I consider it a plus if I get to see the railroad bridge go down
Water was definitely a theme for me this summer. One town in Mass I visited with my daughter was Rockport. There is a road called Bearskin Neck which has shops on both sides of the road and at the end of the road there is a jetty that I enjoyed walking on.
Then I traveled to Portsmouth, NH. I drove along the coast and loved the view all the way up.
Portsmouth, NH is such a nice town on the water with so many little shops. I found this to be a great place to spend a day
When I wasn't making day trips I was relaxing in my back yard and cooling off in the pool
Now its time to do my back to school shopping and I look forward to meeting all my new students in September.
