Still Sanding

Earlier in the week, when it was warm and sunny, my friend Amber and I scheduled a beach day. Today’s cool and cloudy weather changed our plans, instead of relaxing and soaking up some rays we opted for a nice long walk.

Our route took us by the intricate sand sculptures on Treasure Island that are still in amazing shape. Especially when you consider that they were carved for the Sanding Ovations festival back in the middle of November.

Which reminds me, some of you had questions about the art last time I wrote about it: The sand the artists used is regular beach sand, but not from my beach. The festival received permission from the state of Florida to haul in sand from further south (I’m not sure exactly where). And according to the website, the sculptures will remain up through the end of the year, if nature allows.
