I had two favourite models this year - an inspiring dragon from the Hobbit...
...and the gorgeous sleeping lion (Aslan) from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. They were simply stunning - just look at the movement captured in that mane.
Little Lady liked the Beatrix Potter characters - especially the bunnies...
...and the Alice in Wonderland sculptures best (I have to admit the Hare was so lovely!)
I love the way that the Hare is so expressive - there's so much character in his face!
As usual, the children enjoyed having a go at sculpting themselves - almost more than the exhibit itself! Some sand and water made for fun creativity for them... and a coffee and a seat for Granny, me and the Hubby was a lovely respite for us!
The exhibition was far busier than I'd ever seen it - but I guess we'd never visited on a bank holiday before! The sea front businesses needed a busy holiday period and I'm glad that tourists are visiting this inspiring exhibit.
There were far more sculptures than I've included here and I would thoroughly recommend a visit if you are in the area. It's probably worth taking a bucket and spade to fully make the most of the generous sand pit so the kiddies can play and adults can relax!
