Saturday (26th), we drove north to Fort Myers Beach for the American Sand Sculpting competition. A couple miles before the beach a parking area was designated. So we parked, paid our admission fee, $7.00 for me and $6.00 for Tom a veteran, and then rode a bus into the beach area. An area of the beach was bordered off for this competition. There were numerous sculptures by master sculptures, amateurs and pairs of masters. Some were completed and some were still being worked on. We attended a talk about sand sculpting and how it is done. Fort Myers Beach has some of the best sand to do sculpting in the U.S. Sculptures were from various states and countries. The sculptures were really beautiful and seemed to be such a pity to hear that on Monday they would be leveled out.
