Breaking New Ground
Breaking New Ground

This is the first photo on the blog with people in it…so I can no longer say I don’t photograph people!  This was just too cute to pass up — both the kids and their creation.  Another cool, grayish day on the beach with the sun determined to come out soon.

I’ve noticed a lot of moats as part of the sand-castle paradigm.  I wonder if that is a universal…there are possibly a few anthropology studies lurking within a tour of beaches world-wide, studying variation and similarity in sand castles!

Moats: protection, separation, exclusivity.  Not exactly friendly or welcoming.  It would be interesting to correlate the sand castle design with the local illustrations of fairy tales and fables.  Which, now that I think of it, have probably been mostly written by men.  Kingdom, conquest, territory.  Sigh.  Even Frost said, “Good fences make good neighbors.”

  1. So nice to meet you at the beach today! Thanks for posting this pic ….I was only able to grab some poor random shots and I did not have one with all the kids. Have a great day.
