Siesta Key Sand Sculpture Show

One of my favorite things each year on Siesta Key FL is the sand sculpture competition. It’s coming up, The Crystal Classic Master Sand Sculpting Competition, from November 14-18, 2014.  Check the website, here, for the schedule of events for these five days of sand excitement.

The event has grown to a spectacular five days.  The sculpting should be phenomenal and inspiring for the wannabe sand artist.  It is so fun to manipulate the sand into fun little (or big) sand castles on a sunny beach day, but these folks take playing with sand to the extreme.

Admission is charged per day and be prepared to spend you cash on lots of other goodies and food while you’re there.  Have fun. Please write in if you go and send some photos that I can post.

Siesta Key Lifeguard Stands

Yellow, blue, green and red. These are the lifeguard stands of Siesta Key, FL. They are so beautiful especially when the sun is so bright and the sky is so clear.

I’ve taken dozens of photos of these lifeguard stands and edited one of each with a special effect to make blank, photo greeting cards. These are for sale now on my Etsy store, “Crafty Beachcomber.”

These photos are 4×6 and great for using as cards or framing for your home or vacation house.  Please take a look; I hope you enjoy them.
