The 28th Annual apparently . . .
After mass on Sunday, we got a quick lunch at Subway and then walked across the street to the Wyndam Hotel, where the Sand Sculpture Championship was being held on the beach.
It was a beautiful morning, warm and sunny, and a great day to wander among the sculptures on the beach.
Sunday was the last day of the championship, which has been going on for the last two weeks.
The individual sculptures were judged early in the week, and a big rainstorm Tuesday night wreaked havoc with the beach.
Amazingly, only one sculpture was destroyed by the rain, but it was the 1st Place Winner.
Some of the others were beginning to show the effects of time and weather.
But for the most part, they were holding up pretty well.
The detail in many of these sculptures was simply incredible, and I couldn’t believe some of the structures they were able to build . . . like these arches . . . they were amazing!
Others were more simple, but still very cool.
The Doubles competition was still ongoing, with the judging on Sunday. All of the teams were still diligently working on their masterpieces.
These guys were really intent on their work . . .
but the detail that they put into their sculpture was really incredible!
Bryce thought the Hippie Bus was pretty cool . . .
and my favorite was this Christmas-themed elf!
He had a great message, too . . . “’Tis the season to be in Florida!”
