Art in the sand

What better to do on a day on the beach than play in the sand?

Perhaps turning playing in the sand into art?

Here are some of my photographic memories of an annual Sand Sculpture Festival held on Mustang Island, off Corpus Christi, TX.

The festival lasts three days. the artists start on Friday, with their beach place, barrels of wet beach sand and a few tools. Bu Sunday noon all sculptures have to be finished, because then they are judged.

The pictures are from all three days of the 2005 festival and the top pictures are of the sculpture that won firt price that year .
Hope you'll enjoy this little trip to the beach art gallery. :-)
