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)
…and close up of Sewer Connection friend.
(or Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas)
Bed Bugs…don’t let them bite!
The Exterminator…complete with plumber/builder’s crack?!
Lair of the Spider Queen…not for the faint-hearted!
…and close up of Bee Boy. Aaaawwwww!
A Closer Look – under the magnifying glass
Little Miss Muffet, looking a little Shrek-ish.
Alice and the Caterpillar
…and patrons enjoying a tinnie…
Ant Farm…an homage to Farmville on Facebook.
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!
Just to really blow your mind, last summer there were some fantastic sand sculptures in THE HAGUE – go figure!
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.
Wow guys…Weymouth huh? Not ever been there but will make a 'note to self' to have a squiz if I'm ever in the area. Anything else to recommend it?
Some of these are really good, it must take real talent to do this.
I was about to mention Weymouth as well. Though not on the same scale, it's certainly worth a look.
I grew up in Weymouth Dorset where there have been sand sculptures every Summer since the 1920s. They were a delight for us local and the many tourists alike. http://www.sculpturesinsand.com/history.html
