South Padre Island Master Sand Sculptor Lucinda “Sandy Feet” Wierenga has made her mark on the Island landscape.
Wierenga has taught thousands of people how to build sand castles; she has written three books on the subject, designed a line of sand sculpture tools and released an iPhone Ap on how to build a better sand castle.
Before she became Sandy Feet, Wierenga was a high-school English teacher from Michigan who moved to the Rio Grande Valley in 1980 and fell in love with the beach.
