    A great capture Tony. What a shame that they can’t be permanent.

  • Thanks Christine. At least up on the dockside not the beach this one will not be washed away by the next high tide.

    What an amazing find and capture! Thanks for sharing! This is one of the most incredible sand castles I have ever seen!!!! Wow!

  • Thanks for your fave and comment Angie. I only arrived just before I took this shot so I don’t know if there is some sort of frame that the sand sails are built on or not. either way it is impressive work. Tony

    What a wonderful carving. How do they do that?!

  • Hi David. Unfortunately I missed the start of the sculpture. Not sure if they have a frame to put sand on or if they just carve from a pile of damp sand.
