Fun Day with Sandcastle Friends

They started out wanting a Christmas tree or a snowman. The fog changed the sculpture into a lighthouse.

Been playing in the sand with these folks for many years. Have watched the kids all grow up. They get better and better each time. This is a group project with lots of great memories. Thanks for playing in the sand.

We met on the beach in front of Beachgate Condominiums. 

The whole crew. May your sand stand.

Great day in the sand.

Happy Birthday Castle

What a fun group.

Cinnamon Shore was the site for this birthday castle.

Finally a group of girls that are just as crazy as I am.

They kept at it till they learned how it was done. A few were unhappy with their stacking and they just stacked it again till they were happy with it. Great students and great castle.


The Sandmobile shamelessly photobombs.


May your sand stand! great picture.

Sandcastles in Port Aransas, Texas

Had a great visit with Sandi Coe and my mom, Dolores Landrum over the Thanksgiving weekend. All three of us enjoyed the sound of the surf and the feel of the sand and sun.

This was a second lesson for this group. They are one of my favorite families. The boys are really a bit too young to actually stack and carve the sand, however they give it the sandsculptor effort. I have done this long enough that I see how young kids learning through a Quick and Easy lesson can be building fantastic castles when other kids are just learning at seven and eight years of age.

They are all about having fun and helping others have fun.

After my lesson I went to relax by Beach Marker 16,

Looking toward Port Aransas, Texas from the University of Texas Marine Science Institute.

Good night Port 'A'.
