It's time for another installment of my brother Larry's photos.  With all the cold weather we've been having I thought I would take you to a warm place -- Atlantic City, NJ during June of last year to see the Sand Sculpting Contest.

Doesn't this look so nice and warm?  It's keeping me going.  It is going to get warm again, isn't it?

These sculptors are so talented.  I don't think I would have the heart to put so much work into something that would go out with the tide.  Hope you enjoyed seeing them.

In contrast, here is Monday's weather:
High:  35 degrees
Low:  13 degrees
Sunrise:  6:30 a.m.
Sunset:  5:54 p.m.
11 hours and 24 minutes of daylight
Can spring be far away?


  1. Wow !! I can't believe how very talented people are to make such wonderful sculptures. I like sitting at the beach , or walking the water's edge......but I never get into the ocean. I guess because it's never been warm when I have been near. Blessings for a great week Kathy. Soon, it is going to be Spring. xoxo,Susie

  2. I remember that day. It sure was hot. I'm not a fan of excessive heat but after this winter you won't hear even the slightest complaint about the summer heat this year!

  3. I got so excited when I saw the picture of a beach! I thought, good she got away from the snow and hit the beach!
    I guess I was dreaming for you.
    Now, those sculptures... how do they do it? I've tried to make a sandcastle and it doesn't even come close to being art work.
    Thanks for the mental break from the winter weather. COME ON SPRING!

  4. What amazing work! Thanks for sharing your photo's. It's amazing what man can do..having such ability to do a work of art like that simply for the challenge...is mind boggling.

  5. A touch of spring! I haven't gotten down the shore for a few years now,but I remember the feeling of cool sand along the edge.....I like the early morning....before the crowds. My boardwalk treat was hot waffles & ice cream. Thank you for giving me a peek of what's coming!
    Have a spectacular day!

  6. Love it.
    I live an hour from the beach and we also have sand castle days . It is so much fun and interesting to see all the talent.
    Thanks for sharing I love this.
