Growing up on the beach, I was always a fan of sand castles, but this...this is the coolest sand sclupture contest I have seen in a while. This year, the Windermere Sand Sculpture Classic in Port Angeles, WA has a science-fiction theme. Sand, sci-fi, crazy artists...sounds like a killer day at the beach - did someone bring froofy umbrella drinks?
This year's winner, pictured above, is Alien vs Bender (yes, Bender from Futurama), sculpted by Carl Jara, seen here sporting a fine ponytail and sunglasses. Man, this beach is feeling more like home by the minute...where the hell is my drink?
