SAND CASTLES

Watching Them Work
Sand Castles on Hampton Beach, Hampton, NH

 

From the FLAGS you can see they are not all from HERE

 

 

 

 

Sand Castles
Building His Masterpiece

They work so hard moving the sand, packing it tight and then start to make it into something ,besides a pile of sand.

They Will Be Judged
They have very few hours to complete them

White barrels were full of water used to tighten up the sand

Each year special sand is trucked in for our Hampton Beach Sand Castle Competition.

 

They work with very few breaks.

 

Rain and Wind are a given for this competition.

 

Sunburns too!

 

They pack the sand.

They use cool tools, most of which we can find at home.

Straws even.

Thousands come by during the week to watch them build,  then to cast their vote.

This is just the “crowds favorite”  sandcastle.

There will be judges who will pick the top ones,  who will get the CASH PRIZES.

Do you have sandcastle contests where you live?

I love seeing what they come up with year after year.

They work under bright lights, into the night this is when we go to just enjoy , sunrise is when I go for the photos.

 

Hope you enjoy playing  in the sand when you hit the beach.
