Sandcastles at the Shore

Here at the Jersey Shore, we take our sand castle building pretty seriously!
This past weekend, world record holder 
Ed Jarrett was at it again.
This time on the site of Laurita Winery, Ed Jarrett was beginning his next attempt at his 
5th world record for the tallest sand castle in the world.


The sand castle will be built under this protection.
Today, people attending were able to participate in a Sand Bucket Brigade,
laying the foundation for the next sand castle.
The building of the castle will begin sometime in March 2017,
with a completion date sometime in July 2017,
depending on weather!


Ed Jarrett was working on this Halloween themed sand sculpture.


Frankenstein...


pumpkins...


and some mummies on the side!


These drones were also buzzing around...some kind of drone demonstration/race.
I don't know why they don't just call it what it is...

  12. Wow! This is very serious stuff! I love the sand sculpture. The best I've ever been able to do is a few buckets of sand with a very cool moat around them.

  15. Wow, that is an amazing sand castle! I can't imagine having the patience to work on something like this. Sand can't be that easy to work with. Yes, boys do like their toys. My husband has a few things that he really enjoys doing.
    Blessings and hugs!
