When the Modular Madness contest originally came up, and I noticed there was a Parks and Rec category, one thing clicked in my mind-"A beach". You see, I've always wanted to have a beach, or something similar in my city, and this provided just the kick that I needed to get me moving twoards it.

Here, we have the sterotypical beach scene: a sunbather (Who was out a little too long! ;) ), weightlifters, a hula dancer, a boardwalk, sandcastle, a surfer and more!

Let this be a lesson to you kids: If you stay out in the sun too long, then your face will cook off. So, remeber to use that sunblock!

Knowing this was a beach scene, I just HAD to include a beach cruiser, and Lego's bikes work surprisingly well in the role!

This little scene idea came in my head when I was looking through some of my minifig parts, and the idea to completely flip-flop (See what I did there!? ) the gender roles for a little chuckle.

Finaly, a dynamic veiw up the boardwalk. Since you always have to cross something like this when entering a beach, it was a big part of the MOC. But, I think you'll agree, it turned out really good! Afer a day of catching the waves (Or doing anything else on a beach), salt and sand gets EVERYWHERE, so those tall grey showers are invaluable. Also, with the way the tiles are set on the boardwalk, the fisherman got a little... tipsy.
There are more photos in the Life's a Beach Flickr set, so go on over and check it out. And, as always, thanks for taking time to look at this.
