How I Spent My Summer Vacation

November 2, 2008 by Michelle

Ok, so it’s really October. And this isn’t all I did. BUT I made the mistake of building a little sand sculpture while a bit ummm bored watching the wee ones play on the “beach” at our hotel yesterday. Mister Man saw it and thought it was the coolest thing ever. Obviously, I’ve never taken him to any museums outside the Kohl’s Children’s Museum.

He immediately begged me to make more. In fact, he requested specific sea creatures — since we’re in Florida and all. I now know why I never went into professional sand molding. I’ve heard they have contests. We do snow ones up by us, and I’d probably be pretty bad at those, too.

Regardless, I’ll let you admire my works. Knowing that they’re all sea creatures of some sort, let’s see who can figure out what they all are. I do have pictures of them with identifying “real” creatures, but I think I’ll hold off sharing that for just a bit.

Looking at these again, I realize how bad an artist I really am. Squint hard. See the animals moving below the surface of the sand. Hey, we had fun!

    Um, I see a turtle, a whale, a starfish (or a sea star as they’re politically corectly called nowadays), an octopus, an I don’t know, and a sting ray?

    We used to live in the Hampton Roads area and went to the Neptune Festival held at Virginia Beach. There were amazing sand sculptures there!

    Angela – You have really low standards ๐Ÿ˜‰ I may have to send my artwork to you more often!

    Cookie – Welllll it was October when we were in Florida. My posts are just a touch behind ๐Ÿ™‚

    BPOTW – Check. Check. Check (huh, didn’t know that was the new name). Check. A really bad crab (the first one was better but Little Miss accidentally destroyed it). Check. WOW, you’re good! I’ve seen some of the *real* sand sculptures, and I’m so impressed at what they can do. I was just happy mine were somewhat recognizable. To my wee ones. ๐Ÿ™‚
