Hey there!! We entered the amateur sand sculpting contact at the Fiesta of Five Flags in Pensacola. We sculpted a giant quid overtaking a shipwreck with the tittle WREK'D. After hauling a bunch of water from the gulf and an hour or so of packing it down we started carving. We worked as a team of three, me and two other sand sculpting coaches. I sculpted the letters, rocks, and the shipwreck while one sculpted the squid and the other sprayed lots of water and helped with some finishing touchesIt took a little getting used to three people all carving on the same pile but we figured it out. We carved for about 3 hrs before time was up and the judging started. For the adult category, we placed 2nd. So Beach Sand Sculptures was proud to take home some of the prize. We took home a cash prize, a little bit of confidence, and lots to keep working on. I was a little bummed, hoping for 1st......I know...i set the bar a little high with my expectations and competitiveness but we were happy with the way it came out and have some adjustments for the design and our next carve. I posted some pictures of ours and then the sculpture that took first and won peoples choice award....you can be the judge. :) I'm excited to have some visitors for next week or so and teach them how to carve!! And of course, watch the Blackhawks with, since hawks fans are few and far between down here!! Till next time...
