Weekend Opens (8/5-8/6/17)

By Dave Fratello | August 5th, 2017

It's a busy International Surf Festival weekend, so if you're in town, there's plenty to occupy you.

Sunday morning, anyone and everyone is invited to showcase a little architectural creativity at the 57th annual Sand Castle Design Contest.

Prizes are donated by Dave Fratello and DigMB.com.

It's a fun event, but not only for the kids. You'll see some serious folks come out.

It's also a chance to reflect on the words of the sage: "... And so castles made of sand... melt into the sea, eventually." Indeed, Jimi.

We're also proud this year to note that one of Confidential Realty's newest team members is part of the ""Jacob's Angels" 6-man team, raising awareness of Ewing's Sarcoma. (See DigMB's post about the team here.)

As to this week's new listings, Dave was out of town Friday, so we're going to simply share the basic descriptions of each property.
