Please join us on Fort Myers Beach for the 2010 American Sand Sculpting Championship. You probably won’t be counted as one of the 50,000 estimated attendees–as you’re only viewing the magnificent sand sculptures on your computer. You won’t need your sun glasses, either. Simply pour yourself a tall glass of lemonade (or a strawberry margarita), listen to some Jimmy Buffett tunes, and prepare to wander through 24th annual festival which drew artists from all over the world. Please enjoy! The artwork is indeed incredible…
Wasn’t that fun? I overheard a visitor questioning an artist: “Don’t you wish you could save your creation? Aren’t you sad that it’s gone so quickly?”
The artist shook his head.
“Not at all!” he said. “I kind of like the idea of the impermanence. It makes it more special, somehow.”
I agree. These sand creations are indeed very special. It was a pleasure to see them, wasn’t it? (Please visit this official 2010 American Sand Sculpting website for more information.)
