Atlantic Day Trip

Saturday, June 18, 2016. Another beautiful day today! in the 80’s and sunny. It’s another great day for a drive (as if we don’t drive enough).  New Hampshire has only 18 miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean and The 16th Annual Hampton Beach Master Sand Sculpting Classic is happening at Hampton Beach over there. So off we go 108 miles east to the Atlantic.

The big beautiful sandy beach was packed!

Master Sand Sculpting Classic

For the last three days Ten sculptors have been busy working on their individual masterpieces for a piece of the $15,000 prize money. The deadline was today. They had only one hour left to complete their sand sculptures at the time we were there. Here are some pictures I took:

The winners will be announced later tonight. We had some driving to do to get home before it got dark so we did not stay for the awards.

  • Distance driven:  220 miles round trip
  • Admission:  Free
  • Parking:  $4 at parking meter. (Other lots were $20 to $30 for the day)
