There are dozens of bee statues floating around Bee County! The statues were created as a fundraiser by the Coastal Bend College Foundation to support students of CBC. Each business or individual who purchased a bee had the opportunity to design - or even paint - their own statue; so each bee has its own unique personality. Artists from the college donated their time to each creation & you can find the signature of the artist hidden under the belly of the bee! Take a tour of Beeville and see how many you can find!
Why not try Geocaching? Not sure what it is: "Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location."
It's free to join & is a great individual or family fun event!
Rock Painting is a fantastic way to be creative and put a little fun back into the world. It's great because it doesn't matter whether or not you are a good artist - just paint something that makes you happy!
