This crowd descended on the beach just before 4pm, and, by the by, managed to get in the way of some serious sand castle building.
Why? To watch duck racing, Kirkland style. The fastest ducks, as blown against the wind by men (yes, they were all men) with leaf blowers, won some serious prizes.
The trampled sand castles were quickly forgotten when the boys realised that there were 1,000's of ducks to help catch.
