Sand Castle Dinosaur

Cute little dinosaur underneath the sign for the Sand Castle Diner. Easy stop; right next to the road.

[Ted Kettler, 08/01/2020]

The dinosaur was built in 2019 by Mark Stanfield, who had just finished re-building Bud -- a dinosaur from the 1930s -- about four miles down the road. The diner dino has electric sockets in its eyes for light bulbs.
