Outings with the grandkids highlight the days. During the past week we visited a wetlands institute, aquarium, zoo, and today toured a sand sculpture contest exhibit. We also went to the beach.
A sand sculpting world championship (honestly, how many of you knew there was such a thing!?) is currently taking place through June 30th in Atlantic City, New Jersey - the first time Atlantic City has hosted a prestigious event of this kind.
Sometimes a picture is worth paragraphs of words. Below are snapshots of some of the sculptures in the singles competition. The singles competition - one person completing an entire design - is over. The doubles competition - teams of two working on a piece - has yet to begin.
The exhibit is free and open seven days a week.
