Sand Castle Friday #7

After walking all morning without a sand castle in sight, I decided to make my own.

When I’m coastal, my husband and I take every morning that we can and walk the beach. The sun is just rising, the breeze is slight, shore birds are scurrying about. It is the best time of day.

With a coffee in hand, camera in my pocket and sometimes a bag for shells (if I’m on a shelly beach) we set out to walk the tide line.

There are always exciting and crazy things to spot on the beach, early in the morning. Sadly trash from the day before (I’ve been known to collect it if I remember to bring a trash bag), but on a happy note there could be exciting shells, washed up sea life, sea glass, sea beans and more. Sand castles and sculptures are left from the day before and some survive the crashing waves and other things that can destroy a work of art.

I had finished my coffee and decided to make my own castle since there were none to see on our walk.

Happy Sand Castle Friday. Will you make a castle this weekend?
