Unbelievable, Sharon! Any idea how long these took to create?

Posted by Irene Kennedy Realtor® in Northwestern NJ (Weichert) about 4 years ago

Sharon, this event has been on my list in the past, but something always seems to come up to prevent me from making it. Thanks for the photos, they have inspired me to try harder to make it to the beach next year.

Amazing............this is great stuff Sharon, you must have really enjoyed seeing all of these sculptures...........the pictures are fantastic............thanks for sharing with all of us.  Such talented people!

Irene:  Not exactly...but I do know that they had only 21 hours to do it.  So, that's the most time they could have spent on their masterpiece.

Steve:  It's something you really should try to see next year.  They look pretty cool in the pictures, but so much better in person.

Roger:  I did enjoy it and they are very talented.  It's really amazing when you see them up close and see the detail.  By the way...I had that piece of pizza for you today.  It was delish.

Sharon - I'm always astounded when I see what some folks can create out of plain ole sand!  Totally amazing photos!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) about 4 years ago

How creative they are with such a different medium like sand. How long are they on display?

Sharon- these were very impressive!  Delray Beach will have a similar contest this weekend so I hope to get some good pics!

Amazing size and detail in these sculptures. It looks like the cat in the lower left hand corner has some social media icons in it.

Posted by John Novak, Henderson, Las Vegas and Summerlin Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty The Marketplace) about 4 years ago

Roger:  Any time!

Cheron:  Thank you!

Myrl:  It's pretty cool to see them at work.  The detail is amazing.

Lee & Carol:  They are only there until tomorrow morning.  (Wed. 6/30)  There is night lighting for anyone who wants to stop by this evening.

Kathy:  I hope you get the chance to go.  I would love to see pictures!

John:  It has the subscribe, facebook, and twitter logos.  They were all so creative, I would not have wanted to be a judge!

Hi Sharon, I am always amazed at the talent of creating art out of sand. Somehow I do wish there was a way to save some of these amazing creations. Well done and really enjoyed that great talent and great photos.

Posted by William Johnson, San Diego Real Estate Voice, GRI CRS e-Pro CDPE (RE/MAX Associates) about 4 years ago

Sharon, thanks so much for posting these photos.  They are all wonderful, but I agree with the judges decision.

William:  "Great photos" coming from you is a compliment for sure!  Thanks so much.

Mary:  I enjoyed visiting the competition and I enjoyed posting the photos.  Thanks for commenting!

These are totally awesome Sharon, so much talent! I was hoping you would post them, I really like the dragon slithering over the castle and the last one of the person w/ (hair?) in flames, very cool.

Posted by Cynthia Bartch, Redesigned Spaces; All Round Nice Gal (Home Stager/Property Stylist & more! Granville, Ohio) about 4 years ago

Cynthia:  The features are so detailed.  It is hard to believe it's sand and not clay.

Hi, Sharon. This competition was covered by NBC; I saw it on the "Six O'Clock News."

Posted by Leslie Helm, Real Estate For Trail Riders (Tennessee Recreational Properties) about 4 years ago

Leslie:  That's cool!  So, I'm not the only one covering the event!  LOL!

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) about 4 years ago

All I can say when I see these is WOW!  One of these days I will have to make it to one of thes competitions, up close and personal.

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) about 4 years ago

Pretty Impresive!

Thank you for sharing these pictures, Sharon. I wasn't aware there is such a contest in Hampton Beach. 

Watch out Venice Beach, CA,  Hampton Beach in NH beach has talent! :-)
