Perfect weather made for perfect sand-building this afternoon — and homeless people couldn’t be happier.
The 9th annual “Castles in the Sand” drew more than 150 participants. Hundreds of spectators admired their handiwork: animals, mythical creatures, half-clad women, even a few castles.
The event raised thousands of dollars for Homes With Hope, which provides facilities and support services to homeless people.

"Politics as Usual," say the shells. Yes, they all do have their heads in the sand.
