When I first moved to Victoria some 30 years ago we lived in Frankston, but they never had any fun things like Sand Sculpting then.
Today we took a family trip down the bay to see the 2010-2011 Sand Sculpting Australia presentation of CREEPY CRAWLIES in sand. Unfortunately, recent heavy rains and winds had destroyed some of the installations, a few were being re-modelled and repaired as best as possible. The whole thing is on display until 26th April.. .. so still lots of time to get them re-done. Until they are completed entry fee has been reduced to just $5..
Each year there is a different Theme to the display and this year's ''Creepy Crawlies" really was a good one, with spiders, cockroaches, fleas, bees, all looking wonderful in sand.
This was one entitled "A Closer Look" and was a giant magnifying glass showing all the bugs,
but it really looked like a Tim Burton horror story!!
After a good look around, lunch and a walk on the Frankston Pier, we made a quick stop off at 2 Op Shops, the RSPCA and the Savers, but as LJ and I had to be mindful that Grandad was waiting in the car for us, we didn't stay for as long as we would have liked to ! Savers in Frankston is on TWO levels. I did find a few good buys in the RSPCA tho!
