Announcing the SandBox Cam...

About a month ago Spi-Cam -- the webcam Fred and I had jointly invested in many years back and that he had left set up on the north deck of my beach house - finally died. It was an expensive camera that I did not feel I could afford to replace, so I didn't.

Instead, I got an inexpensive security cam and with the help of my friend JC I was able to get it recording the activities in my sandbox. I will be the first to admit that long stretches go by without much activity out there, but today I am working on a foam celtic cross commissioned for a beach wedding, so it may be at least a little bit interesting -- if you would like to peek into my backyard, consider yourself invited :)

p.s. I am in the market for big chunks of styrofoam if you happen to come across them. I particularly like getting pieces that had been destined for a landfill...

Greetings Sandy,

While totally unrelated to the blog I'm posting a comment on, I just wanted to let you know I have been a long time reader of your blog, several years now it's been. And you have inspired me to take charge and do what I wanted. That is, move from wasteland known also as Oklahoma, to the beautiful beaches of the state of my birth(Texas). I had originally planned to move right on down to SPI. However, as fate would have it, my father got a job here, in Corpus, and we landed on the beach on North Padre Island with a nice rental townhome. Will life someday take me to SPI, island of my dreams? We'll see....but one things for sure, you have an amazing talent at what you do. I love to build sandcastles, but wow, you are an artist. I wish I had the talent you have at sandcarving.

Thank you for coming by and taking the time to add your comments.If/when you ever make it this far south, I am sure that you will fit right into this community.

I will be in Port Aransas for the sand sculpture contest in April - if you find yourself in the area please stop by and introduce yourself. - sf

Well given that Port Aransas is right down the road, I will try to come if I'm not working or something lame like that. I do know one thing, wherever I decide to go, be it Corpus, Port A, or SPI....I will be on a damn island....and that is the main thing I care about...but I am planning on coming to SPI for at least a mini-vacation soon
