Default This art can NEVER last

...because it is sand sculpture. Took these shots near the pier while the 8 or so artists were still creating their visions. Here is a quite detailed sand replica of the pier itself, which is in the background.

Here we have four beached sharks. Note the wires extending from the fins, which support them. Also note the surfer riding a wave in the background. The hose, below, keeps the sand moist.

This shows some roses and leaves. The artist can be seen on the far left.

That is some amazing talent! The one of the pier is a neat idea! Nicely captured as well Walter!

While they are all engaging shots, I especially like the first one. Your angle on the shot is just about ideal.
