Sandcastle Days are here! πŸ–

Hey ya’ll, the Sandcastle Days festival is coming right up.

This festival is the annual chance for sand sculptors to work their magic on the beaches of South Padre Island while it’s not too not and not too cold.

πŸ‘‰ I’m a sucker for this kind of thing. Hitting South Padre Island every summer as a kid, I did my best to craft some badass sandcastles. But I must admit now that they were mostly just Hot Wheels race tracks, doomed sea levees, or abstract drip art.

I’d love to see what the pros can do.

I can’t make Sandcastle Days this year, but it’s officially on my list of stuff to do in Texas.

By the way, I found this festival on a list of Beaches That Are Even Better in the Fall right alongside La Jolla, Dubai, Costa Rica, Aruba, and Greece. So take that, Texas beach naysayers! 🀠

Pleasure Pier, Galveston

Super cool aerial pic of Galveston’s Pleasure Pier. 😊

I’m filing this as a little reminder to get to back to Galveston and hit the pier.
