Here is her full post:

"Yesterday our beaches were finally open again after adjusted level 3 restrictions were lifted ❤️With a deep longing to once again be able to feel the sand between our toes and the water of the Atlantic ocean cooling our feet, we headed out to Muizenberg beach in Cape Town..."
"To our surprise, there was the MOST INCREDIBLE sand sculpture being built by this inspiring young man, named Innocent. I was fascinated by his talent and determination to create something so beautiful from beach sand in the blistering heat. I went to talk to him to find out more about our very own Michelangelo. Below is his story ❤️"
"To me, he was building #SandcastlesOfHope and that is why #ImStaying . What an inspirational artist of Hope in a time when we so desperately need it. Well done Innocent! You are amazing!"
