Hooked on Sandcastles....

Who couldn't be hooked on Sandcastles?
As children that is the one thing we associate going to the beach with.

And I know I am surely hooked!
Each year there is a big sand building festival
that goes on in Revere Beach.
Artist come from all over to compete...

These are just a few of the beautiful creations that there were.
The crowds were so huge that it was hard to get a
picture of everything.

It is amazing the time and talent that go into these.
Along with the thought process going into the theme.

I really love this Celtic Knot one....

They bring in extra sand of course,
and everything is gated off for a few days.
Far from the shore, as not to have it fall into the Ocean.

I show you these to help you also know the region
where we live...near the Ocean.
And Monday my daughter's art class,
will be taking a field trip to build sandcastles.
Wouldn't you be hooked too,
if you could get credit for going to the Beach,
and your only in 7th grade........
To see what others are hooked on this Friday
check out
And head to the Beach before the snow comes!

Those are unbelievable! It must take hours to create those.

I always admired the sand artists because they have to let their work go.

I am amazed at how they can do that!! We are going to California next week --- maybe we will play in the sand.
