Bent on Destruction

Part II was a large, ambitious expansion.

This is the final part, part III: destruction

Anthony decided that it was time to destroy the sand castle. It's not that he wanted to use the space for anything. He just wanted to destroy. (What do you expect? He's a five-year-old boy, you know.)

As far as I know it's still there today (10 days later), although we've had some incredible thunderstorms that I'm sure have left it a bit battered and soggy. (I've posted before about what heavy rain does to sand.)


One comment so far...

I describe my workflow here, but in short, I sync up my photos with the track log from a GPS unit after the fact. —Jeffrey
