Sand Sculpture

Fort Myers Beach hosts a ten-day sand sculpture exhibition and competition every November.


Two sand sculptors added children's heads to their work.

The castle was a popular prize winner.


Amazin' Walter built the castle.

I'm ALWAYS amazed when someone puts so much time making something exquisite yet ephemeral!

Amazing that the sculptors get the sand to maintain the detail of their work. Especially in the second for last photo. Great images.
