Sand Castle Friday #9

This sand castle never quite made it. I watched from my beach blanket as children were stuffing sand into their sand castle molds. Each mold was turned over and then removed to reveal a crumbling section of what might be a castle.

They never really finished their work, smashing a few of their creations and moving on to something else like jumping waves in the surf. The children never joined these mounds with a wall of sand to protect the population that may have been planning to live within. So here is just the ruins of an abandoned project. Kind of reminds me of the subdivisions that were never finished because of the recession in 2008.

Happy Sand Castle Friday. Will you build one today?
