This was a super fun day joining in with Low Tide Aliens! A family from Newport Beach started making sand mandalas or “crop circles” on the beach, and it’s become a hit with locals. More and more people are showing up- young, old, artists, non artists- it’s a great way to meet people and create cool art in a BIG way.
They use non-toxic sand ordered off the internet, and only know when their next meet up is by the moon. Once they know where the low tide will be, they send out an Instagram post with the time/place ( usually in the OC area like Newport or Huntington beaches) and get to work! It’s pretty easy with everyone’s help and the result is beautiful! Definitely check them out and don’t be shy if you want to join, they’re all very friendly and love the help!
