Fantasy Sand Castle Art

Last week I spent many days at local beaches with our house guests--a normal thing to do when relatives from up north visit us in Tampa. Kids and parents building castles in the sand inspired me to search for some fine examples of fantasy sand art.

These should get you in a summertime state of mind! They sure make me want to head back to the beach to make my own dragon slithering in the moat of a fairy castle.

May your summer be filled with many lazy beach days!

Those are just amazing! I wish I could succeed in sandcastles like that. Mine just always tend to look like a bucket...seconds after it falls over! *laughs*

Mine aren't works of art either! Thanks for stopping by and have a great time on vacation.
