The Whitstable Oyster Festival Day II

We really had a good time enjoying the offerings of the Oyster Festival over the weekend. We got behind in blogging as we kinda tired ourselves out. All of us needed a couple of quiet days to recoup, relax, and reset. Monday and Tuesday served that purpose quite nicely.

Here’s a recap of the second day of the Oyster Festival (Sunday):

Another walk on the boardwalk (this may become a daily thing)
Family waits for Dad

A crew of “sailors”(?) singing traditional sea chanties. It was fun to watch them. The kids weren’t terribly fond of the colorful lyrics…
Singing off-color shanties
More singing

No explanation for this one.
Hello Sailor!

The crowd!
Mass of people near the stage

Daddy found himself a lovely local brew (Whitstable Brewery, I believe!). I can attest to its loveliness. Mmmmmmm. Beer.
Happy Brad with his ale

Local band was pretty good

Another afternoon at the beach. This one was gorgeous, sunny, and warm.

Cutest ice cream cart I’ve ever seen.
Saved by the ice cream man!

Is he doing it right?

She loves Charlie’s ice cream, too! (Yes, she did eat two complete cones, and then a huge dinner)
Two fisted!
Doggy wants some too

And a lovely day was had by all.
