Building on our previous success with Mr. Sand Turtle,
Husband and I decided to brave an actual sandcastle.
Making some stairs:
Not exactly "plumb", eh?
We were really nervous about carving this arch:
And we were so shocked that the thing stayed standing,
that we immediately carved another one under the stairway.
Then Husband started in on the landscaping and
I began the decorating.
We ended up with windows, arched doorways, some brick siding,
and a winding creek complete with carved bridges.
(And a Rubber Duck in the background, of course.)
More of the same was added to the backside.
The only thing missing was a castle-sized damsel-in-distress for the balcony.
