Weston-Super-Mare Sand Sculpture Festival

We went to Weston-Super-Mare last week for a change of scenery and to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine. 

I have blogged about Weston-Super-Mare before, its a seaside town. And as much as I like eating chips by the sea and licking ice-cream, I am not a beach person in the slightest.  
So I was glad to see something else happening there.  

We had never been to the Sand Sculpture Festival before, so  decided to check it out this year and it was actually quite good.
The theme this year were interpretations of the hypothetical question ...What If ?!  I admit I did not get them all let's see how well you can do?!
We don't stop using plastic,    


I made this What if Rome Never Fell?
What if I won the Lottery?!

One of the most commonly discussed questions in recently history.  We've all dreamed up an answer to the question, what's yours?
What if pigs could fly?!

This one with three women from different ethnic backgrounds was my favourite and got my vote.

What if...Women could live without fear? 
What if someday women were given respect and treated with the equality they deserve.  Although in the last decades we have advanced women's rights, much remains to be done.  There are many who fight for change.  surely one day...we will get it

  1. Wow that is quite artistic - with lots of food for thought. I love the beach. And I would love to see this. There is one in Melbourne but too far away to go without a bit effort and I still haven't manager to get there.
