U.S. Art of Sand Sculpting Challenge, San Diego, California


Three months ago, we took the road trip to visit the Battleship USS IOWA Museum, Soviet Scorpion Submarine B-427 and USS Midway Navy Aircraft carrier in Los Angeles and San Diego, California.

It was our fortunate day as we were able to visit the Art of Sand Sculpting Challenge 2012 by famous sculptors from all around the world who were participated for this competition. I hadn't seen before but I heard a lot of positive reviews from my friends about the Art of Sand Sculpture. 

No doubt it's really an eye opening to me to appreciate the Art of Sand Sculpting which requires high imaginative and endure with strong patience in order to produce a beautiful sculpture in 3D in a long period of time.
