We had a visit to Karekare beach recently, took in some early spring sun, cool wind and sand sculptures.
We climbed a sand dune and the kids set to work building a hut.
I investigated some sand sculptures, at the opposite end of the scale.
They seem to defy the laws of physics.
In a most elegant way.
Even human waste is given is elevated to art.
Huge and precariously perched atop a sand cliff.
A tiny piece of bark.
A miniature other worldly landscape.
