Painting is just another way of keeping a diary ~Pablo Picasso

In Bandon, Oregon, which is a truly magical stretch of coastline in southern Oregon, there's this guy who comes out to the beach everyday at low tide and draws a huge walkable labyrinth, different everyday. On the day of my visit, I was walking along the beach, enjoying the rocks and the waves, when I came upon a crowd of people all gathered in one place. What a surprise to find this amazing labyrinth! It takes 45 minutes for the artist to carve out the labyrinth path, and then he has volunteer beach "groomers" who use rakes to fill in the patterns. Everyday the tide washes away his labyrinth, and the next day he creates another. I'll post an overhead view tomorrow. If you're curious to see more though, here's a link to his website, Circles in the Sand. It includes some videos of the labyrinth constructions.
