Believers in Love by Alan Clay

From Sydney's Bondi Beach, to a magic mountain in New Zealand, an unlikely father and daughter team of sand-sculptors embark on a crazy adventure which explores the transient nature of art and life, to discover that dreams are real.

Sax brushed the water off his clothes. "I can't believe that," he said, unable to let go of his surprise.

The next moment the bus cut even closer, and a big splash of water drenched him, while Sarah managed to jump out of the way.

He looked at her, the water dripping off him, and she grinned. "Do you believe it now?" she asked.
