Day 2 of the festival was held at Sandfields Beach, SA1 and was the beginning of a very hot spell of weather, prompting everyone onto the beaches. The recycle eco-band was once again very popular with youngsters practicing their drumming skills, making sea music.

A family work on the tail of the mermaid using collected oyster shells.

The Swans fans were back again - and its another GOAL!

Making and decorating a willow dome shelter was absorbing work for different festival goers.

Sea monsters were created from driftwood.

Adding the passenger to the shell boat was hard to do but finished it off just right.

The festival at Sandfields had been a successful day with lots of participants interested in the concepts and ideas behind the festival. They felt that it was a great way to raise awareness of endangered marine species on our coastline. The next day the festival would be moving to Blackpill Beach.
