The Hampton Beach Sand Sculpting Classic is usually held in June. This year's competition was delayed until September, courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I thought about visiting last Friday while the sculptors were at work. I changed my mind after seeing photos from the initial day of the competition showing crowds at the overlook points with people standing too close together, some wearing masks and some not. I decided that this year I would have to be satisfied with only seeing the finished sculptures.
It's amazing that such beautiful and intricate pieces of art can be created using a medium that is as fleeting as sand.
This sculpture is titled "Just Breathe". It was created by Karen Fralich.
