Whipping Up A (Sand)Storm…

Every year, Sand Sculpting Australia whip up a real treat for Mornignton Peninsula residents with a display of creative prowess on the foreshore at Frankston Beach.  This year’s theme was Creepy Crawlies so with some trepidation, we tip-toed quietly through the entrance to see what was in store.

Here’s a run down of what we saw:

The Entrance (for what it’s worth)

Flea Circus

Sewer Connection…

…and close up of Sewer Connection friend.
Boogie Man
Bed Bugs…don’t let them bite!

The Exterminator…complete with plumber/builder’s crack?!
Beetlemania

Lair of the Spider Queen…not for the faint-hearted!

The Hive…

…and close up of Bee Boy.  Aaaawwwww!
A Closer Look – under the magnifying glass

Enchanted Garden

Little Miss Muffet, looking a little Shrek-ish.

Alice and the Caterpillar

Roach Motel…

…and patrons enjoying a tinnie…

Ant Farm…an homage to Farmville on Facebook.

Frog Pile

and last but not least, the paparazzi in action…

Pretty amazing huh?  All made from sand!
So there it is peeps – my last post for the year.  Thanks for coming along on the Gidday from the UK ride for 2010.  Let’s make it a ‘little bewdy’ in 2011!
Happy New Year everyone!

  1. I went to Weymouth a few years back, there's a few good beaches in the area plus Portland Bill Lighthouse and Corfe Castle nearby.

    The sculptures really are on a much smaller scale than the ones in your piccies though.
