Last month my friend Sheila and I decided it was time we had another little outing, and as she had heard about the Sand Sculpture exhibition in Brighton we decided to go and see what it was all about.
It takes a couple of hours to drive to Brighton so we set off about 9.30 and arrived about lunch time, then drove around until we found the Sand Sculpture at the Eastern end of the beach, near The Marina, and quite close to the nudist beach!! The exhibition had only been open for a day or two, but the sculptures will be on show all through the summer. Apparently the sand used is a particular sort which holds its shape for a long time, even if it rains.
The theme for this year is ‘Around the World’ and, as I am sure you can see from the photos the sculptures are just amazing. I particularly liked the Geisha, but to be honest they were all fantastic, I very much admire the talents of the artists.
We were just about the only visitors, which was great for taking photos and having a really good look at the sculptures.
After we had looked round the exhibition we went on the Volk’s Electric Railway to the Pier, where we enjoyed a brisk walk on the pier, and Fish and Chips in the restaurant at the end of the Pier, which was lovely, and by that time much needed by both of us.
Sheila and I always have a good day out, this was no exception, and we have already decided that we need another day in Brighton to visit the Pavilion, and maybe go on the wheel next to the Pier. I am already looking forward to it
