More Scarecrows at Cambria Scarecrow Festival

DSCN4213 2

There are many old surfers in Cambria but this was the only one we saw catching a wave this morning. The “real” surfers were standing on the other side of the road, beside their vans, waiting for the waves to come up in the afternoon.



Scarecrows Keep Coming to Cambria


Don and I drove along Moonstone Drive this morning and took pictures of some Scarecrows I hadn’t seen last year. They just keep getting better and better.

If you are able to visit our little village of Cambria between now and Thanksgiving, you’ll see over 400 “scarecrows” adorning our streets in front of shops, hotels, the Old Grammar School and the Historical Society. They will make you chuckle and smile. “Who thought of that?’, you’ll say.

They come in all sizes and subjects. There is no end to the creativity it takes to imagine and create these characters. This time of year we normally have beautiful weather so plan to spend a day outdoors. Stay overnight in a hotel and eat in one of the little restaurants downtown. This event is for everyone.

See some of the fabulous scarecrows of 2012 on this POST  and some of the stars in the festival’s first year (2011’s) scarecrows HERE.

It this a fairy godmother or a princess?

This a common sight in our little village of Cambria. Plein Air painting is a popular past-time. Stop by the Art Center to see paintings produced by artists here.

I think these are “fanshionists”, not hookers!
