Castles In The (Soggy) Sand

Today’s leaden skies threw cold water on Homes With Hope’s 12th annual Castles in the Sand fundraiser.

Only a few of the 34 registered groups braved the weather to create clever, intricate sand sculptures (and raise money for one of Westport’s most impressive organizations).

Organizers extended the event another day. Tomorrow’s forecast is slightly better than today: partly cloudy.

Out in force today was Builders Beyond Borders. This year’s service trip was to Guyana, so their sculpture incorporated that country’s flag, and its famed Kaieteur Falls (it actually works — see it below, right in the middle?).

Builders Beyond Borders members (from left): Tom Wormser, Leo McElroy, Michael Ferry, Maggie Sherin, Selena Lauria, Corey Werner, Noah Bender, Claire Smith and Ileana Muxo.

Meanwhile, Emily Harris and Grace Olsen made a comfy sofa out of sand (below). The cat — sitting on the left — is named (of course) Sandy.
