Last weekend me and my family went on a trip to Hampton Beach, where the annual Sand Sculpture Event is held. These works of art each year range from the very strange to the philosophical to the endearing and pure fun!
I thought I’d share some of the photos I took of this year’s event with you. And before you ask, I don’t always understand the meaning behind certain sculptures, haha. 😉

The winner this year was “Up from the abyss” (below):
Every year nearby restaurants and businesses will add a scuplture to the mix, so here are the ones they made; including Mc Donalds (the lobster) and Coca Cola (the mermaid):
And here are my favorites 😀 :
These last ones are a tribute to the beach event itself and to Charlotte Preston:
This last one is a cute, little extra. I think they used it to test out the sand quality before building the bigger projects:
A castle of sand and a random head, lol! 😀
Here’s me high-fiving the stone fish!
So this was my #weeklysmile from last weekend. I am sad to say though that all of these beautiful sculptures were vandalized soon after. The thousands of people who come here every year to see them were robbed of enjoying this event and the hard work the artists put into it.
