Stumbled upon the Pride of the Fox Riverfest today, Sunday, with Cath and we sure had a ball. Strolled through the amusement rides, vendors booths on both sides of the river, had a Fudgsicle in Pot Park, rock bands rocking. Dragon boat races. Lunch at an Italian bakery. But the highlight was watching a master sand sculptor at work--wearing his iPod and sunglasses, a healthy looking middle aged man plied his craft in front of amazed onlookers, turning 40 tons of sand into art. The photo above is from a past year. This year it's a castle and ice cream eating ogre. I came back to the condo and Google the festival, and the sculptor's name is Ted Siefert, and he is like the Michael Jordan of sandcastling. The grand poo-baah! He's written two books on the subject, one considered the sandcastler's Bible. He has seven world records, including the longest sand structure at 6.5 miles! I just saw "the star" of sandcastling. And he is, indeed, very good. A gorgeous day with my wife before the rains hit.
