July 2008 Sand Dragon by AndrewSalt July 2008 Sand Dragon by AndrewSalt
This past weekend (July 5 2008) I was visiting my parents in Sheboygan, Wi. and decided to take some time to play in the sand. Sheboygan has some rather nice beaches along Lake Michigan, and though the water was far too cold for swimming, the holiday brought out a throng of people. I started this sand sculpture at about 9:00 that morning, and finished around 3:00 that afternoon. I had a great time making this. The people were polite, curious, and respectful. My sand sculpting even inspired a fair number of kids to make some of their own pieces of sand art. After I was done, and left the beach I was told that one child even took to guarding my dragon, to keep it from being knocked down. He must have done a good job because it still stood intact the next morning (a rarity, believe me!) and only had a few signs of erosion from the evening winds. One could even say it had gotten better overnight, seeing as how someone apparently decided to add a spiky tail to it. They even did a good job.

The tools and materials I used were just sand water and my e-tool (folding shovel)
