Shipwreck Cove

From standing in line for its opening at 9 a.m. to the bang of fire works, the opening of Shipwreck Cove was a success. The kids participated in a treasure hunt at Benjamin Beach, field day events, arts and crafts, face painting and sand-castle building. Live entertainment kept the fun from burning out until the fireworks went off.
