Sandy the Sandcastle-Man

The wonderful Matt and I decided to start 2011 off with some much needed relaxation. So we headed of to Phillip Island for 2 nights, and stayed in my Uncle's beach house.  It was the perfect way to unwind after an extremely eventful 2010 and a ROCKIN' New Year's Eve party.

 After the required napping and food indulgences we headed off to the beach and started on crossing another thing off my list, No. 65 - Build a giant sandcastle.  Armed only with a regular house-hold bucket and our imaginations we began to sculpt what can only be called a masterpiece! It took a whole HOUR to complete, but I think you'll agree the end result clearly shows how talented we both are (read: we suck at building sandcastles).

We dubbed the creation Sandy, the Sandcastle-Man.  Alas, poor Sandy did not sprout legs and a heart and become real. He was crushed by other passers by sometime after we left him there.  Also.... the tide may have had something to do with it.  The one thing Sandy did do, was to make me remember just how much fun it is to be a kid again.  Matt and I had HEAPS of fun building him together.. it may even become a regular beach activity for us down at The Island.
