Castle! With moat and everything!
Took a while to find a decent (but cheap) bucket from the on-site gift shop. The lady behind the till was very helpful though, pointing out a previously hidden bucket that matched the criteria. Yeah . . . I wasn't gonna pay out 20 Euros or whatever it was, but didn't need to as it turned out. Anyway . . . R****** worked on the gate / portcullis thing at the front, as well as a few towers, whilst I worked on foundations, moat and all the other towers. I might have got a bit carried away . . . R****** eventually drifting off to return to his book, and me digging away at my moat, ripping away fingernails and eventually hitting bedrock (in parts, the sand was only about a foot deep or so). Anyway, I think it paid off . . . My idea had been that the present castle was built on the foundations on a previous (ruined) castle. The moat worked and the whole thing was pretty solid and, as far as I could tell, was still largely intact the following day. Can't be a beach holiday without some kind of sandcastle. M**** provided decorative pebbles on the front of the castle.
