Mosaic Mondays - Our Beach Sandcastles

Each week over at Little Red House , we post a mosaic of some of our favorite photos. Please drop by and look at some of the wonderful entries. They are amazing.

When our family gets together at the beach for a family reunion, the men, boys, and small children build intricate sandcastles each and everyday using all kids of tools ranging from large and small shovels to children’s, carpenter, and brick mason tools.  These are photos of my two favorites from last week’s 2010 FR: one is of a huge pyramid and the other the Sphinx.  These was mammoth and people staying all around us would watch the construction during the day and then return at night with flashlights to watch the tide rush in around them.  This reunion tradition is one of our best.  The men, boys, and children do all the work and the women sit in those beach chairs behind and WATCH! As always, a happy Mosaic Monday to all of you.


  1. How fun to build sand castles on the beach! We don't live anywhere near one. Thanks for visiting my blog and for the nice comments.

  2. Fabulous sandcastles! Even though my city is on the coast, we just don't see many sandcastles being built on the beaches ... seems to be losing favour which is such a pity.

    Thanks you for dropping by my blog ... and thank you so much for your lovely comments. (Both of them came through beautifully, by the way! LOL!) I'm glad you enjoy the posts from downunder ... it's a very different environment for gardening here in my corner of Oz ... challenging!
