Whimsical Sand Sculptures

The beach is flooded with bare feet and sand is sculpted into unique and whimsical designs…it must be time for SandSations! You’ll rarely find any boring sand castles as the contestants are mighty talented and some are quite serious about their sand sculpting.

The Long Beach Peninsula hosts the SandSations sand building contest each July. The festivities begin this Wednesday. “SandSations has been a favorite event in Long Beach, Washington for more than 25 years. Run wholly by volunteers, the event draws visitors from around the globe to participate and to watch the fun,” states SandSations.

David and I experienced our first SandSations last summer and we had a mighty good time…as you can see from the photos below…

That’s right…Parrots of the Caribbean!

    May I just say what a comfort to discover someone that genuinely
    knows what they’re talking about on the internet.
    You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people need to look at this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you’re not more popular because you surely have
    the gift.
