the sandman cometh

Today was the annual Sand Snowman contest in Hermosa Beach. I biked down to meet up with my friend Pat (at 9am no less!) and we wandered around. It was pretty amusing. A lot of flat snowmen - er, sandmen - the best of the flat ones ended up being a cookie in the end - complete with cookie sheet. The waves were crazy huge today, and some of them even managed to wreak some havoc on the contest, but it all ended up okay in the end. Our favorites, besides the cookie, were the kayaking sand/snowman and the surfing sand/snowman, complete with dolphins. Yeah, white Christmases are nice, but tan ones aren't so bad either.
