Sandcastle Waterpark Always A Fun Time!

Once a year we make our annual trip over to Sandcastle Waterpark. About an hour drive from our home, Sandcastle has water fun for the whole family. The huge water amusement park runs alongside the Monongahela river. Typical beautious wooded hillsides of Pennyslvania surround the river. The grass lounge area has huge willow trees you can plant yourself under to grab some shade, or if you prefer you can lounge along the many sunny areas around the pool.

You can ride the numerous waterslides, or just chill out slowly tubing down the lazy river. There is a sandbar where you can catch some alcholic beverages, and all kind of food along the boardwalk, along with a clothing and jewelry gift shop. There are baby pools, and an adult pool area, and the Mon-Tsunami wave pool which is my favorite spot to ride the waves up to six feet. The day we went last Thursday was a sunny 80 degrees. We had rain the day before so the Mon river was pretty muddy. Love that muddy water!

You can't help but notice the enormous bridge and railroad trusses directly across the park! There were also a lot of boaters and jet skiers out in the water.

We weren't the only ones enjoying a swim. Geese swim as elegantly formated in the water as they do in the sky.

They always come in twos. In my romantic mind, these two are inseparable lovers. They remained together most of the day.

Me and my main man, steal a moment alone together.

I see you're enjoying this wonderful weather we're having!

Yes Jo I am. No complaints at all, the nights so wonderful too. Need no air conditioning. Can't believe it's almost the end of July, summer will be gone soon! But I'll enjoy every minute of it until then, as I'm sure you will too!

Hi jo!

Blue sky, Lovely day!!!

Do you like roller coaster? I used to, but not now :( I can't imagine riding the waves up to six feet!

Geese, come in twos, how nice! Not geese but pigeons, I see them come in twos around here :) They make us happy!

Hi Ochi,

The geese came in a flock, like in the sky. Quitely floating down the river. The ducks were in twos, they do make me happy! Sorry the picture came out dark, but at least we can say we were there! :)
