|NOT A BAD IDEA (EXCEPT FOR THE HANGOVER).|
Sand Bar (my name for it; click here for my first viewing), which had become Taberna de Piratas (Pirate Tavern), has been re-imagined and rechristened as Los Barrachos del Monasterio (The Drunks of the Monastery). One "monk" looks especially comfortable.

ARTIST PAUL BLANE AT LEFT, TAKING A BREAK WHILE AN ASSISTANT WORKS.
The constantly evolving "Drunks of the Monastery" and several other brilliant works along the beach are the designs and masterworks of artist Paul Blane. He is apparently one of the world's top sand sculptors. Although it's obvious form his work, I didn't know until today that it's an official designation. He's been written up in international newspapers and travels the world for competitions. He included his website on the "monastery" sign. Check him out at http://thesand.wix.com/sand.
