Forget the sandcastles you built on the beach when you were a kid.

The teams that competed in Saturday’s annual sandcastle competition on Galveston Island, designed and constructed some really creative “sand art.”

The design themes  ranged from the humorous to the political.   Several teams focused on the economy: bailouts and failing banks, and others  poked fun at the “octomom.”

At least one focused on Hurricane Ike and another commemorated D-Day.
