A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

ON SHIFTING SANDS

One sandcastle creator hopes his nearly 32-foot structure will be declared the highest in the Guinness Book of Records.


Ed Jarret built the sandcastle In Casco, Maine, over two months with the help of more than 1,000 volunteers and 40 dump-truck loads of sand.

Now, that's one gritty way to spend the summer!

Jarret, by the way, already holds the record for the highest when he built a 29 ΒΌ-foot sandcastle in 2003.

Guess he didn't want this year's to be a beach bummer.

See it being built in time-laspe photography on YouTube.
