If there was one thing I never expected from Weston Super Mare it was sunshine. However, I was lucky enough to carve at the Weston Sand Sculpture Festival organised by Nicola and Alec of Global Pow Wow. I was put on the top of a sand pile so that everyday I had a view over the beach and Bristol channel during one of the warmest months of May that I remember. I was so distracted in fact that my David Beckham footballer ended up looking nothing like him which wasn’t such a bad thing.
Despite this, the sculpture event is a great place to visit if you are in the area and will be open the whole summer!
One other bonus of carving in the UK was that I also got to see lots of friends that live in the area and to swim in our rather muddy sea. Nice! Below is a little sculpture by Johannes that I rather liked; its Bert that does it for me.
