Sandcastles in the Magdalen Islands
In the begininning...there was sand. The beautiful long white sandy beaches of the Magdalen Islands. They were the inspiration for a sandcastle contest that has become an institution on the islands.
The annual gathering celebrates its 25th year this weekend, and Albert Cummings and Nicole Gregoire will be there digging.
The couple started the contest and told Monique Lacombe why they - and so many others -still love the event.
