Attractive personality.  Couldn’t capture the face as I was scared to go take photograph from in front and the person never looked up or sideways

Friends having a walk

It has many amusement attractions, The whip, Ferris Wheel, Blue beards palace, Fun house and many more.

Since 2004, every year in July Sand Sculpture Festival will take place.  During the festival an area of the beach is fenced off, creating a temporary gallery of sand sculpture for visitors.

In 2017, International Sand Sculpture festival was held from 21st to 23rd July.  Here are the pictures taken at that time.  As my camera settings were wrong I couldn’t get better pictures.  The pictures are mostly taken with my android phone.
