Naive is the man who builds castles out of sand or is he?

Did you make sand castles as a child? Do you still make sand castles as an adult? Do you need a beach to make sand castles? Or are you so desperate to make sand castles, any sand box will do? Do you need a child to make a sand castle with? Or do you not mind the eye rollings of the nearby cynical adults and throw away any age induced self-consciousness and build to your hearts content? Are you prepared with shovels, ice picks, and whatever professional tools or do you go in blind and improvise with whatever accidental tools you might have in the trunk of your car?

@dlowan,
I can only make pathetic little sand castles when I go to the beach.

Tend to be too ambitious when it comes to tunnels and such but I go without the tools and engineering to keep the tunnels from collapsing. Razz

Sand sculptor and artist Nicola Wood from Leicester, England, works on her sculpture of William Shakespeare on Monday in the Weston-super-Mare Sand Sculpture Festival on the beach, which this year has the theme and celebration of all things British. The exhibition is a popular annual event at the south western England seaside resort where the sand is perfect for world-class sand sculpture.
