This morning I strolled down to San Diego’s always dynamic Embarcadero before the late August heat and rare humidity became unbearable. I wanted to get pics of the 2013 U.S. Sandcastle Sculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exhibition out on the cruise ship terminal pier before it opened. Yes, I’d rather not pay for admission. I’m cheap! Unfortunately, a security guard was posted at the entrance, and all I could snap was the awesome (and sexy) lady pirate sculpture in front by the sidewalk entrance. If it cools down tomorrow or Labor Day, perhaps I’ll splurge and check out the many amazing sand sculptures and other artwork!
