On Saturday morning, Grammie took Jack and Casey down to the beach in front of the cottage. The tide was way out and we walked out to meet it. On a sand bar, Grammie started building a castle and Jack and Casey eagerly helped, turning it into a castle fit for King Neptune. They searched for shells and glass to give it windows, then dug a moat and built a bridge and erected a flagpole. It was quite a creation, but doomed from the start as the tide turned while we were out there.
Jack and Casey stood on their own island for a bit as the tide swirled around them. They moved to the "island" where the castle was and hung out there as the tide came in around that as well. We watched the castle get swallowed in the water and then headed back up the beach where Grammie then turned all manner of beach items into delicious food. Casey only had to be told it was pretend food a few times.
