Texas Sandfest 2015

I spent Saturday at the coast, Port Aransas, Texas.  I took the kids down there for Sandfest, a sand sculpture festival held each Spring.  We had a ton of rain come through South Central Texas last week so most of the sculptures were damaged, but I thought I'd share with you some pics of my favorites.

This was the first thing you saw as you came through the gates.

 

On the side of the same sculpture...

 

A penny, same sculpture...

 

The ladybug was really kinda cute...

 

Willie was pretty amazing...

 

I'm sure this has some significance that I just didn't get but it's pretty cool...

 

 This one was pretty amazing...

 

This dragon was a tiny part of what was supposed to be a larger sculpture but it had pretty much been destroyed by the rain....

 

Wish I could build sand castles like this one...

 

Or this one.  I'm not picky! :)

 

Then there were contests for amateurs but they had just started the day we went so not a ton of progress.  But this one was kinda cute...

 

And we ended the day with lunch at a restaurant on the water.  This was my view from the table...

 

Hope yall had a great weekend too!
