Today’s excursion was to
the beach downtown Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square for Sand in the City. I would like to have seen the pile of sand before teams moved it to their areas.
The 19 teams were identified by different colored T-shirts, creating quite a visual feast. I got there about an hour before ending time, so I got to see some action as well as the finished creations. Off to the side was a large sand filled area where young children happily played in the sand, sand-sculptors in training.
The alligator hiding under the child’s bed was my favorite. People hovered so that I never saw its real title, but it sure made me think of Where The Wild Things Are. All finished except the clean up; waiting for the judging.
I may have to return tomorrow as there were many I could not photograph because the light wasn’t right. Summer is a great time to be in Portland.
