Friday Fun Facts and Video – Wilbur

This week I decided to showcase Wilbur, the famous beach pig. He is the main character in Wilbur the Beach Pig Remember When. One of my favorite parts of working on the beach, was watching Wilbur take his daily dips in the ocean, or grunt at us in front of the sailing school shed when he wanted a shower to cool down.

Here are some videos made by others who thought Wilbur was just as cool I did.

We cleaned and filled his water trough each day

Hearing him snore was a daily occurance.

He is missed, but will always be remembered.

A Note from the Author of the Living the Beach Life Series:

I decided to take a few minutes off from editing and writing lesson plans to spend time looking at the photos I have taken over the years in St Kitts. The last days have been a photographers dream. Here are some other days for dreamers. The island beauty is my muse.
