Last year at this time, we left our RV park for a few days to stay at a hotel at South Padre Island, TX.

By this time, we had been living in our motorhome since mid October, so the spacious hotel room was very welcome.

We enjoyed many long walks on SPI, and this display of Christmas sand sculptures was one of the treasures we came across during one of those walks.

This display kicks off the Christmas season each year on SPI. Talented sand artists from all across North America showcase their art.

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”
