photo backlog: sand sculptures and fireworks

P1030761

So there’s this sand sculpture competition in Hampton every year. They import 300 tons of sand and invite “Master Sand Sculptors” to work their magic. This was the first year I’d been to the competition. I have to admit, as much as I love coastal New England, Hampton Beach is a bit like the Reno of New Hampshire. Not my favorite place in the world, but the sculptures were very cool.
