Isn’t this gorgeous?

I took this picture and several others. I am in awe. The Architecture is amazing!!! Now, who is so privileged to be in this building everyday? I felt like I was transported back in time or to a European City. France anyone?

Sidewalk Art by this young lady. I have never seen her before. She uses Chalk to create art on the street. Splendid! She looked so happy doing what she was doing. She did not object to me taking a picture of her. 

AMAZING!

When you love what you do, you don’t worry about the money you just continue doing what you do because it makes you happy and you want to make others happy too. That is what this young lady have managed to do.

LOOK AT THE CROWD DOWNTOWN!

NOW, CHECK OUT THE PICTURE AT THE BEACH SO MANY PEOPLE!!

DSC00839

PROBLEM. NO PARKING. NEAR THE BEACH IF YOU ARRIVE TOO LATE.
BE THERE BY 7 AM.
Too early of a start for you? Well, plan to park several blocks away and walk.

IF YOU WANT TO PARK NEAR THE BEACH DO NOT SHOW UP AFTER 10 AM IN THE MORNING WHICH IS WHAT HAPPEN TO US. I HAD TO PARK ON SOME SIDE STREET NEAR THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT OVER AT DARCY STREET THEN WALK TO THE BEACH.

YES.

PLAN TO LEAVE EARLY

IF YOUR GOING TO COBURG BEACH.

BE THERE BY 7 AM OR SUCK SALT!

We passed through the Downtown at 1:30 PM and asked two Police Officers where can we find Parking, They said, “Good luck.” That’s when we realized we were in trouble. When a Police Officer say “Good Luck” you know your not going to find any parking.

Then we asked a woman on the street she look at us and said “Ahh! Oh my! Oh! You won’t find any parking around here.”

DESPITE THE HASSLES WITH THE PARKING IT WAS MORE THAN WORTH IT. IT WAS SUCH A GORGEOUS DAY AT THE BEACH.
