ORANGE BEACH, Alabama -

When you come to the beach, you play in the sand. But there's one family that's taking it to a whole other level.

It's one of the best beach days in a while and you never know who is going to show up, or what you'll find.

Charles McNally and his daughter Kyla come to the beach from Indiana for one reason, to play in the sand.

As sand sculptors they spend hours molding and shaping most folks just walk on.

"He says he's an artist and he just likes doing it," says Blake Lorow from Atlanta.

"We do this every year, come down here and do one everyday," says McNally.

So far, they've been pretty busy. "He's had a minion from 'Despicable Me', 'Duck Dynasty'," says Lorow.

"We did a Duck Dynasty and for the first time in 15, 20 years nobody destroyed it for two days," says McNally.

"and a dragon," continues Lorow. "The dragon was my favorite. It looked great."

"I carved it out by myself," says daughter Kyla. "It was pretty awesome."

Needless to say they draw a crowd. "We've seen a little bit, it's awesome. He's very talented," says Jenny Clark.

"This is the third one I've seen," and they are particularly popular with the youngsters. "I make sand castles," says 5 year old Dominica Dandelet-Vento. "I've have never made something like this though."

It's going to take about six and a half hours to complete this sculpture. Then it'll probably be torn down overnight and they'll start all over again tomorrow.
