First Sand Castle of the Season

My brother Doug and I made this one Sunday, a perfect beach day, with some help from Ellen, niece Haley and nephew Charlie. I planned it and did the central section, Doug did some of the outer towers, Ellen and Haley did the front gate, Charlie helped with the moat.

Another angle.

I like the shadows on this side, didn’t get a good picture of the sunny side, where there were some houses.

Here are Charlie and Haley for size comparison, with young Dylan at back left.

The tide came in and I enjoyed seeing the castle gradually crumble.

Almost gone, with some unknown onlookers. You can find castles and other sand sculptures from previous years at the SAND CASTLES link in the left margin of this page.
