When I went to Ocean Beach, San Francisco this evening, I saw hundreds of beautifully crafted sand castles lined up along the shore. it was San Francisco Sand Castle competition. I wish I was there earlier so that I could see all of them. Since it was twilight already, I could see only handful. Still, these pyramids and Sphinx were pretty impressive.
