From the beach its sandy walls rise,
Its turrets reach up to touch the skies.
A tiny moat dissolves the keep.
Its pavers are strong, though only two inches deep.
Tiny footprints embedded in the sand,
Where once a child there did stand.
Its grace and beauty a short time will last,
Before the sea washes it into the past.

BEACH CHAIR Ted R. is taking a dip in the ocean but says thanks for stopping by.

Sand castles were so much fun to make, we should not just leave them to the kids to play with, go on make yourself a castle while your on the beach.

I just love the white sans in Florida. I was at silver springs one year and the sand was so white the fish would not have been able to hide if they wanted to.Love the verse on your header.

Have a great week!

As much as I would love for you to visit us on this side of Florida, I have to say that the beaches on the West coast are much prettier.

Nice sand castle. I just logged on to the Ft Myers newspaper for the first time since we left there last spring and saw about the sand castle competition that we've missed by not being there yet. Your pictures are better than the newspapers!

Rainy and cold in Oregon; can't wait for Florida sunshine.

A very nice assortment of pics there, the two long shadows add interest too. Always loved building sandcastles, at least that's something that hasn't gone out of fashion and is still 'free'.
Enjoy your Sunday.
