It appears vandals destroyed many of the sand sculptures on Hampton Beach.


Hampton Beach's Facebook page says the sculptures will be standing until July 6th and will be lit for night viewing. Below are pictures I took earlier this week, before the vandalism took place. Such a shame to ruin such amazing works of art.
