You cannot go to the beach without building a sandcastle. My small granddaughter loves to dig in the sand AND build sandcastles.
The tiny grandson, not so much. He only lasted about a half hour before he wanted to head home with his mommy. Terry and I stayed with Leeya so she could continue to dig and build.
I walked on the beach, ran into the surf to get more water in the buckets for building, and enjoyed the ocean as it rolled in. Fortunately, the castle and its mote were just out the of way of high tide.
