Super Sandcastles


Super Sandcastles

I have never been a beach bunny.  Whether that’s because I spent my teenage years living rurally with a river running past the bottom of our property or because I lost my mother’s wedding ring at the beach in the sand, I can’t be sure. 
Anyway, I really dislike sand and the inability to ever get clean at the beach.  After years of swimming in unsalted water, it’s hard to compete with that fresh, refreshing, crisp feeling that comes with taking a dip in a river or lake.  I do however have good memories of younger years when my Dad would ‘bury’ us in the sand. That was always fun!
Now that I’m a Mama, and we holiday every Summer on Waiheke Island, I’ve decided I need to embrace the beach a little more enthusiastically.  This Summer it’s my mission to make “sandcastle building” our thing.  We’re novices at this stage, but check out what is possible when you take a bucket and spade to the seaside!?  These sandcastles just seem to get more amazing each time I look at them.
