Some days I actually forget that I live in such a wonderful place. Early Saturday morning, my son Scott and I drove out to Siesta Key Beach to see sand sculptures created by teams of master sand sculptors. World-famous Siesta Key Beach hosted the event, and Mote Marine Laboratory's sea turtle conservation and research program received the proceeds.
Scott and I wandered around the barricades as we were too early to get through the gates, but we didn't miss anything! In the center was a sand masterpiece which highlighted the sponsors of the Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sand Sculpting Competition. We watched these artists creating incredible sculptures using Siesta Key's crystal white sand. Someone in the crowd mentioned, these sculptors spray their final creations with a mixture of water and glue. I wondered why just a tiny bit of sea breeze wasn't blowing sand everywhere.
When Scott and I arrived on Saturday morning, the masters were putting final touches on their designs for the beginning of the Siesta Key sand sculpture competition, and it looked as though they may have worked on Friday night using flashlights. The results of their hard work were just fabulous.
There was also Village of Sarasota vendors showcasing everything from jewelry, kernel corn, pet products to Sarasota real estate. Siesta Key Beach is known world-wide for its fabulous white sandy beach. We can attest -- it's pretty special!
