Paksville, BC

Originally uploaded by triviaqueen
Like Naramata, where CUPE BC holds their other week-long school, Parksville is a beautiful setting. Located just north of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, Parksville (and nearby Qualicum Beach) are well-known vacation and retirement spots.

Parksville is also world-renowned for its annual sandcastle competition -- more specifically, the Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition -- which is part of their Beach Festival.

This photo is looking out over some of the tideflats, just outside the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville.
