Sand Castles
At Heceta Beach
As An Oregon Water Place

A sand castle is a type of sand sculpture resembling a miniature building, often a castle. The two basic building ingredients, sand and water, are available in abundance on a sandy beach, so most sand play takes place there, or in a sand pit. Tidal beaches generally have sand that limits height and structure because of the shape of the sand grains. Good sculpture sand is somewhat dirty, having silt and clay that helps lock the irregular-shaped sand grains together. [from wikipedia]

A simple fort was constructed by forming two volcanos in a shallow pit.

A more substantial fort had been constructed from drift wood surrounding a sand floor.

The dog named Gypsy explored a castle with a moat that had been left behind on the beach.

A road led into a bridge over the moat. The castle, at one time elaborate, had succumbed to the ravages of wind and time.

Sea shell fragments scattered on the sand had been turned into a castle when a line had been drawn in an oval around them.
