Master Sand Sculpting Competition

IMG_8152When we were up at the beach a few weeks ago we noticed the beautiful sand sculpture. Every year Hampton Beach has their annual sand sculpting competition. We don’t always get to make it up there to see them in action. These sand sculptures are amazing and leave you wondering how these guys really do it. I guess it would be like watching an ice sculpture in action. You still can’t believe that someone can create amazing things from sand or ice.

After we finally got the girls away from playing and decided to grab some lunch we walked down the boardwalk and saw the rest of the sculptures. These sculptures were insane! We heard so many oooh’s and wow’s from the crowd.

I remember when I used to try and make sand castles at the beach when I was a little girl. I was barely able to get the sand to stay in place after I flipped my bucket over. I wonder what they use to keep the sand in place and protect it from the weather.

Check out some of these awesome designs. These people are truly talented.

Have you been able to create sand castles without them tumbling right away? If so, how did you keep it together?

    Those are pretty amazing! I saw a really neat one at a mall once, but I don't know how they do it either. They must add something to the sand? Who knows!
