We love Rosemary Beach and Cottages for Kids. About the only thing better than watching kids play out-of-control on the beach is watching them crawl over, around, and through the incredible custom playhouses every year during Cottages for Kids.

Christmas Beach Sand Sculpture in Seaside

Attached is a photo of the Sand Sculpture on the beach here at Seaside, FL, with some folks from California having their picture made. Rick and Mark, the sculptors, will be tearing it down today, but putting it back up this coming Saturday and Sunday!

They even had someone do a marriage proposal in front of it today with a photo! Another family drove from Orange Beach just for the photo and I met some folks from California and Atlanta getting their photos made in the few minutes I was down there.
