Castles Made of Sand

For reasons which escape me, Federal way, WA, was host to the World Sandcarving Championships this past month.

Counter-intuitively, you don't hold these things on the beach.  You truck tons and tons of sand into a parking lot downtown.  After you learn this (after getting lost heading for the wrong park...) it makes sense, that you would have more control and, well, security in a fenced off parking lot, but it was a surprise...

These things are amazing; especially considering that the medium is sand.  Well, sand and water.  
I'll post more in other posts, so as not to crash the entire internet with my pics.
