Building Sandcastles

We have been out with our walking group today for our final walk this year followed by a Christmas lunch at the golf club.

It has been a very hot, hazy, smoky day and you can see the smoke haze in this photo. I think the temperature reached 33 degrees c by lunch time. Still no sign of rain.

As we walked along Little Beach I spotted this chap having great fun building a giant sand castle.

Luckily most of our walk was in bushland at the back of this beach so we walked in plenty of shady areas.
that's going to be some sandcastle!

Interesting. I do wonder if he’s building a sand castle or re-designing the dunes, lol!

Thanks for sharing. Just as hot here. We had a little rain but it seems to have past.

Great shot, it would be good to see the result.

All kids do. And when they become a man only the tools chance for the bigger.

That is going to be quite the sand castle! The haze is really something. I guess it's a good thing your walking group has finished for a while.

@kjarn I am over the smoke too. It has been terrible for weeks and now there are more fires closer to where we live so I don't think it will end soon.

@koalagardens @julzmaioro @peadar @dide @beryl @snowy @joansmor @sangwann @louannwarren @gijsje @merrelyn @mittens @rontu @carolmw @haskar @happypat @sdutoit @pattyblue @pyrrhula @olivetreeann Thanks, he was having a great time. No idea what the point of shifting the sand was though.

@pcoulson Better that his mum asked him to go play on the beach rather than play on the motorway.

There is an ice cream farm near Chester where one of the attractions is an area of sand with child sized diggers like this where children use them to search for treasure. The little ones love it!
