Thursday doors : Sand Safari…

What a surprise I got when I went to see how the sand sculptures were progressing along the beach front at Surfers Paradise. I was happily wandering along taking lots of photos (I will be putting them in another post soon) and this was one of my favourites.

The irrepressible Donkey from “Shrek”, I loved his cheeky expression. Then I noticed the 3 mice peeping at me. So I moved round a bit to get a close up of them. Look what I found…

A very realistic looking door. So I went round to the other side.

Another door.

Not a real door, but so life-like I thought I would show them in Norm’s door challenge this week.


Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time),

    Your doors are so original.


  3. These are great, Pauline. We’ve all stretched the “rules” a time or two. But wait. There are no rules, at least that have ever been shared. By acclaim, your entry is enthusiastically accepted.



  4. This is fantastic, what clever people, I’m looking forward to more of these 🙂


  5. Fantastic sculptures…hard to believe they are made of sand. I remember seeing the sand sculptures in Sydney but they didn’t look as great as this one.


  6. Sand sculptures are so amazing. This one is wonderful. I can’t even get a bucket of sand to stay upright for long. 🙂
