Sand Art- Kris Kringle Hits the Beach

All of the other sand sculptures this week were practice sessions for my special The Man in the Cinder Clouds sculpture...it was Christmas in July on Hilton Head Island!

Here we have Kris Kringle hanging out under the branches of an evergreen tree.  I wanted to add some other characters, but didn't have the time.  I also wanted to make a fireplace with his boots / legs in it, and an evergreen ranch and burnt chair leg on the hearth and a stocking hanging and a dollhouse and pair of boots...Maybe next year.

You are quite the Renaissance man, Rick! Hope y'all get home safe and sound.

Cheers!

It took a while...at one point we traveled only 10 miles in 90 minutes...but we made it home safe and sound.

Thanks Donna. The top of my head got pretty sunburned in the process of making this, but it was worth it.
