Sand sculpture

Hi Everyone! I hope y'all are having a great week.
I wanted to share with you this really neat sand sculpture.

No, I didn't do it. My ability  does not extend beyond sad little sand castles
and mud pies!
It was created by a lone older gentleman on the beach.

I started to go over and ask if I could take his picture as he was finishing but
being the chicken that I am, I waited and took shots of his work after he left.

It had such detail. He even used small reeds for the windshield wipers!
I guess the thing that really bothers me is ... all that work and it is gone when the tide comes in!
Oh well, I guess that is really living for the pleasure of the moment.

I am working on several projects at home that I hope will last a little longer. I like to get lots
of mileage out of my work (smile). I will be posting them later this week.
I have been enjoying family times the last few days and have not been at the computer as much
I'm anxious to see what you all have been doing.
I have sung Nursery Rhymes and read One Fish, Two Fish 
to the g'babies so many times my voice sounds like
" Froggy" from The Little Rascals. Remember them?

I am linking to Outdoor Wednesday
Drop by for lots of fun photos.

  2. It takes a lot of talent to accomplish something like this. The tide won't wash this sculpture away because you captured it with your camera. La

  3. What a wonderful sand sculpture! Until we moved to Nevada we always lived near the ocean and I loved visiting the sand sculpture competitions. So much talent and creativity!

  4. That sand sculpture is amazing piece of work. I do not blame you for getting these great shots of it. I would have gone right over while he was there. I never meet a stranger. It is a shame in away the tide will carry it away. Thanks for your visit.
