Lincoln City sand sculptures show creative side

Planning a vacation to the beach for the family, even for a day?

Looking for new ways to build sand castles, or perhaps try your hand at sand sculptures?

Lincoln City, Ore. held a sand sculpture contest on August 11, and encouraged families to build traditional sand castles or be even more creative. Several mermaids appeared, but bears, sea lions, dogs and even a beaver emerged out of the sand, sticks, stones and shells.

I visited the beach to share images of some of the sand sculptures that attracted visitors to the historic Taft district of Lincoln City.
