Sam’s a lucky young man. When most kids go to the beach they build a sand castle. Sam’s Dad helped him build a fort!
Well, they actually fortified (sorry – I couldn’t help myself) an existing foundation…
Even more wood:
Document and admire their handiwork:
Now, hop back in:
Who knows what might come along… Indians… Varmints…. Bigfoot….
I went down to the beach from my vantage point up by the road and got the photo of Sam, who wanted to take off his sweatshirt and show me his cool dinosaur t-shirt. Gathering wood for the fort was hard work, right Dad?
I climbed back up on my observation perch and thought maybe I planted a seed and they decided to build that sand castle after all:
No, let’s play “Where’d Dad Go?” instead (and now Dad had shed his sweatshirt as well):
He was just here a minute ago…
Later, Sam decided if Dad could climb the rock, he could too:
Found you. Ha!
Now I’m going to go up and help you get down….
Quality time at the beach!
