Can you guess what it is? Brighton Sand Sculpture Festival

daisysandWe were recently invited to check out the Brighton Sand Sculpture Festival which has taken over Black Rock on Madeira Drive.

Now I humbly class myself as a bit of a sand master. I have spent many happy hours building master pieces or turning the kids in to mermaids. But this is something different.

The festival is at Black Rock in Brighton (Marina end) until the end of September and tickets includes a one way trip on the Volks Railway from the station by Brighton Pier. We parked in the free Marina car park and spent the morning on the beach.
