Sand Sculptures and Touch Tanks on Revere Beach

            This past weekend Lindsay, Luke, Ruth, and I visited the Revere Beach Sand Sculpting festival.  I have been going to the festival each year for as long as I can remember, and the event is always so much fun. The sculptures are always amazing, and this year was no different. The artists are all so talented, and their work was so amazing to look at. There were huge crowds around each sculpture watching the sculptors work.

There were a lot of other fun activities there, and there were tons of people so the sea creatures in our touch take received a lot of attention. The kids loved touching and holding the lobster along with the three types of crabs we had (a spider crab, a green crab, and a Jonah crab). It was so much fun meeting all of the kids and teaching them about the animals that live in our ocean. So many people were surprised that all three of the crab species could be found in the Boston Harbor and off of Revere Beach. There were people from the Boston area and all over the world visiting our touch tank so it was great to meet all of the excited kids and families. 

It was such a fun event, and I can't wait to check out more throughout rest of the summer!
