Who doesn’t love to build a sand castle. It brings back the kid in all of us.
Imagine going to the beach, either Fort Myers Beach or a beach on Sanibel Island or Captiva Island. As you wake up one morning, you think….today is that day that I want to build a sand castle. And you start to think how magnificant this sand castle is going to be. As you begin dreaming you think about the moat… you think about the bridge, and how you will create that, you think about the walls….to protect your castle.
But what you forget to think about is the tide! Whoops. So before you start building, just make sure it’s far enough back to not have it wiped out by high tide just before you are done building…..and taking that epic photo of your sand castle!
Here are 5 awesome sand castles….that can help you start thinking about what you want to create.
