I always destroyed my sand castles when it was time to go home. I spent a lot of time and effort to build it. I can’t just leave it sitting there for some other kid to smash!

Knocking down or watching your sand castle be consumed by the ocean is an interesting reward for your hours of hard work. You know going into it that you are making a very temporary sculpture but sometimes it’s sad that you will only have a few pictures to show for it. Getting to jump on it at the end of the day is much better than the sudden collapse or the unexpected rain storm. At least you get to decide when you return the grains back to their source.

I remember being very young the first time I got to play in the sand on a beach. I had my little plastic shovel and started digging to fill up my pail with sand. I was completely surprised when I struck wet sand. I played in many sand boxes back home and this had never happened before! When I dug a little further the hole started to fill with water! Where was it coming from?! Was I digging through to the ocean on the other side of the planet?
