Despite this, we really enjoyed our visit - it's really fascinating to see all the sculptures various artists come up with and what they are inspired by within a theme.
...This was by far my favourite sculpture this year. Just look at the detail in those eyes. They seem to capture such animosity!
The littlie's favourite was this Batman and Hulk sculpture.
It was fantastically detailed and enormous! Poor Hulk is really getting a bashing from the wind as well as Batman!!
But then - just look at the size of King Kong! You can see bits of damage to the sculpture around his face but he remained extremely impressive in reality.
Jaws was a little scary ;0)
And Gollum added another 'Baddie' to the mix. The face and eyes are so expressive - and just look at those fingernails!
The children enjoyed a number of the cartoon themed sculptures - Sid from Ice Age and Toy Story 3 above. Little B found it funny that the bad teddy (sorry - forgot his name) had a bird 'doo doo' on his head. Karma I guess ;0)
ET was phoning home too...
The Titanic was sinking into the sand - I so wanted to do the cliched "I'm King of the World" pose but wasn't brave enough to do so in front of the throngs of people that were also viewing the sculptures!
A Velociraptor took centre stage in a sculpture comprising lots of different elements from Jurassic Park.
There were lots of other sculptures too - James Bond, Clint Eastwood, Darth Vader and a sand sculpted Hollywood sign to name but a few so all in all...
LOTS TO SMILE ABOUT!!Despite all my efforts, due to half term holidays and my Big Girl being off school with a chest infection this week I am behind on my blog posting! Hey ho - In June I celebrate the first anniversary of this blog and am about to launch the Carry It Forward (although I'm majorly intimidated to offer my home made goodies to you talented people!) So please do watch out for those posts as I'd love you to participate!
Thanks for reading,
Today I'm sharing in these fab parties!
