Zombies in the Sand

At the beach, some people make sand castles. Some people make forts and some people just dig giant holes and then fill them back in. Some beach goers like to bury each other in the sand. I don’t particularly care for that  last one as I have, like Edgar Allan Poe, a HUGE fear of being buried alive; however, to each his or her own and to that end, I’d like to address the title of this blog post.

Zombies in the Sand. Yes, this is what I did on my summer vacation Down East in Washington County. We stayed in Roque Bluffs (which is next to Machias, ME and about an hour away from Lubec, ME which is on the border of Canada). 

My husband and daughter made a wonderful castle out of sand that was eventually destroyed, after being  stomped upon by giant dinosaurs. 

I, on the other hand decided to make zombies instead. Now, I don’t profess to be a great artist but I had to get it out of my system one way or another; you see, I neglected to bring ANY zombie creating materials with me so the urge to create was strong and yet without an outlet. 

Sitting on the beach, staring out at the never-ending blue-green sea, it hit me. I could make a zombie out of sand. It was a perfect Maine beach day with my family, and my zombie creations. I mean, what could be more normal?

Seaweed, driftwood, and seashells made lovely additions to my zombie. I felt the natural aesthetic of my zombie was complete after using the decorations that nature had to offer. Totally eco-friendly, locally derived, and fair trade. All materials biodegraded and were recycled into the ocean…from whence they came. 

Love and Hugs from the far east beaches of Maine…..
