Times of Halloween, [warm rain] and Pumpkin Carvings in White Rock, BC

@ West Beach Bar & Grill 'Pumpkin carving competition'

This was taken when the ground was wet and the rain , the warm late summer and early autumn rain sprinkled our neighbourhoods.

Kids were dressed warmer and became still wet while admiring the pumpkin carvers attempts to truly excel in their art form; carving in this huge number of pumpkins to see who will win and take home the prizes.

The Marine Drive in White Rock wasn't traveled as it used to be. Plenty of parking spaces and 'dead' was the environment. No more bustling of tourists and local visitors to walk the promenade or have a mocca and a cake or an early afternoon aperitif by the barside.

Maybe visitors have had enough of entertainments for the while being....? Parents may not like pumpkin festivals or carving competitions after all . However, I did discover after having looked around the area of the West Beach Grill, that kids love the challenge both weather and carving could offer each one of the four young ones I noticed, this late afternoon.

It seemed to me that only the dog owners were out this swampy and dreadfully water born environment on the 25th October 2009; I call it the 'wet Sunday' in White Rock, BC, on the 'Canadian Riviera'.
