30th Annual Sand Sculpting Canadian Open Competition in Parksville











I thought you might like to see some of the fabulous sand sculptures that were up on Vancouver Island in Parksville B.C. We stayed there for a few days after coming back from Nimmo Bay. We stayed in a hotel that has a view of the beach in the second photo of John. We just had to walk across the sand when the tide was out and it does go out really far, to see the wonderful exhibit. I loved them all and it was very difficult to decide on a winner but I loved the last one I have shown of the boy sleeping with his bear fighting off the dragon in his nightmare.

All the best, Jean

  1. Oh, these are just wonderful!!! Art created just for an occasion and then allowed to disappear. Enjoyed this post. Here's a thought --- wouldn't it be something to replicate one of these in miniature? 8-)

  8. Superbes! J'adore les sculptures en sable, en glace et en neige. Ce sont des œuvres tellement éphémères, que seule la pensée peut les immortaliser...
