Call Jim Frimmer for all your San Diego County real estate needs

This picture was taken at the 30th U.S. Open Sandcastle Competition in Imperial Beach on August 8, 2010. The boy's name was Alex, and he's 10 years old. I asked him how tall he was but he didn't know.

As a mother of a 12-year-old boy...that kind of scares me.  LOL  I'll bet that was a fun event to attend.  Thanks for sharing!

I got a chuckle because when I saw "U.S. Open" I was thinking golf and for an instant thought someone was looking for their ball.

Wow, that looks so very claustrophobic to me.  I am sure that you will have photos of the sandcastles??

Jim,  Great to finally meet you and Russel in San Diego!  I hope you know I "borrowed" your "let me google that for you"  for my AR blog.  The say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... right?  Best,  Kathy

Sandcastle maybe is is the begining.  Or is he in a hole he can't get out of.

Just looking at that picture makes me feel calustrobphobic.  I don't think I'd be brave enough to jump down that hole.

A little deeper and it would be perfect for a couple of my kids (just kidding, I think).

Good picture, but it also scares me. I have been at the beach when these cave in, and have witnessed lifeguards trying to pull them out!

Endre - Pictures are over here: http://activerain.com/blogsview/1790762/building-sandcastles-at-the-30th-u-s-open-sandcastle-competition-in-imperial-beach-california

Roger - See the finished products over here: http://activerain.com/blogsview/1790762/building-sandcastles-at-the-30th-u-s-open-sandcastle-competition-in-imperial-beach-california

Lina - I guess as long as his head is above ground, if the sand collapses, he'll be able to breathe while all the emergency personnel dig him out.

Mary - We didn't have a fast lane when I was growing up. LOL

Mel and Gretchen - So why did you move?

Richard - Maybe Tiger? He has been spraying them all over the place this year!

Dan - Mom and dad were keeping an eye on him.

Jean - I think the same: Photos are over here: http://activerain.com/blogsview/1790762/building-sandcastles-at-the-30th-u-s-open-sandcastle-competition-in-imperial-beach-california

Kathy - That's fine, since I borrowed it from someone else here at ActiveRain. Share and share a like.

Tim - Most of the children were just playing in the sand. They had the children's competition the day before.

Chris Ann - Nor me. I'm not even much of a beach bum to begin with.

Carra - I think the biggest one was about six feet tall. It's pretty awesome what some of these folks can do with sand and water.

Tony and Darcy - Mom and dad were close by.

Jack - You mean you'd keep your monster dogs over your kids? LOL

Sharon - That would be my concern, too.
