Sandcastles on South Beach 2014

Wednesday was the 8th Annual Sandcastle Competition on South Beach.

Never wanting to miss a good time, the Harbor View gang went over to check it out. And BOY was it a good time! The weather was stunning and sunny and the interns took full advantage of a trip out of the office…

The stakes were high- the winner get a flag announcing to the whole beach they are the winner AND bragging rights! The competition was broken up into Juniors (younger than 13) and Adults (13+) with a special “People’s Choice” award that was voted on by other passing beach-goers.

The competition was fierce. And the subject matter of the sand sculptures was pretty varied…

We showed up as most of the teams were putting the final touches on their sand creations. And while most of the teams were from the Eastern Seaboard, there were some teams from the Midwest and the South. This “Jaws” enthusiast was all the way from the California!

Of course, Harbor View Hotel had a team representing us! The activities department had been hard at work since 10am and were almost complete by the time we showed up…

But Seth, the Director of Activities here at the hotel, took some time off of sand sculpting to do a quick interview with Lucas about what it takes to compete…

After hours of building the winners were announced and awards were presented…

The First Place Winners for the Junior Division built an  octopus enjoying a birthday cupcake, using beach rocks as sprinkles. Nice work guys!

The Adult competition was pretty stiff and the Harbor View team didn’t win first unfortunately. BUT we still held our own against the other teams! Here is the hardworking team with their ribbons.

All in all it was a really fun summer day. Everyone was out to catch the waves and some rays and see the sand castle competition. If you didn’t make it this year, be sure to stop by next summer- or better register as a team! The competition is run ever year by the Edgartown Board of Trade. Hit up the website for more information!

What a afternoon! Thanks to everyone for reading!
