Sand Sculpture Festival in North Somerset, England

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 11, 2013
There is nothing quite as much fun as playing on the beach, especially if sand castles are involved. We can attest to the fact that this enjoyment does not dissipate as we grow up and become "adults." It seems as though some "adults" have taken over the beaches of Weston in North Somerset England recently for the Sand Sculpture Festival. This year's theme was Hollywood and it resulted in some Hitchcock, Harry Potter, E.T., and Pirates of the Caribbean magic!
