Pacific Whale Foundation Sand Sculpture Competition at Keawakapu Beach, Maui
The winner of the “Funniest Entry”
Networking is a wonderful thing. On Saturday, I was out on an early morning paddle with the Kihei Canoe Club and a fellow paddler asked me if I were going to the sand sculpture competition. I had no idea that there was a competition like that here. When I lived in Los Angeles, I went to the sidewalk chalk art festival a few times, but never a sand castle competition. I thought it would be a great way to spend a little time before I went to my open house at a new listing of mine (Maui Kamaole, Unit A101, MLS# 34440).
As it turns out, it was sponsored by the Pacific Whale Foundation and it was held at one of my most favorite beaches in Kihei, Keawakapu Beach. If you haven’t heard of the Pacific Whale Foundation, they run whale, dolphin and snorkel tours out from Lahaina and Maalaea Harbor. The mission statement of the Foundation is, “To promote appreciation, understanding and protection of whales, dolphins, coral reefs and our planet’s oceans.” They are an eco-friendly organization and I highly recommend booking them for your next water adventure. You can actually adopt a whale or a dolphin! That aside, it was a fun, sun filled day of adventure as you can see from my video below.Â
Winners in the following categories received prizes from the Pacific Whale Foundation’s Ocean Store.
Best Overall Dolphin, Best Group Children’s Entry, Most Realistic Dolphin, Funniest Entry and Most Creative Entry. To view photos of the winning entries, visit the Pacific Whale Foundation.
It’s always nice to get away to the beach, even if it’s for just an hour or so. That is what makes living on Maui so special for me, as it can be for you.
