My beloved sand castles

This was always one of my favorite family things to do: building sand castles whenever we were at the beach. I would say that it was Granny and Dad who really showed me how to build these and boy did I have fun doing it. Then the brothers and cousins joined in and we used to have competitions to see who could build the biggest and nicest ones.

I don't think that I ever expected to win the competitions; all I ever wanted to do was to use my imagination to create shapes of all kinds and sizes. Castles of all shapes and sizes and anything and everything else. I would even create my own inventions and hold them in my hand or just simply build them on the surface of the lovely sand.

Sometimes castles turned into mountains or at other times they turned into houses. What joy it was for me and I shall never forget!

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"If you either are or have been a victim of crime, violence, abuse, or bullying, and if you are simply tired of being bombarded with audios and scenes of the above, then I am asking for your support. I have written and recorded audio mysteries that are completely void of vivid descriptions of sex, crime, and violence because I firmly believe that it is time for us to use the spoken word to help influence our kids to start listening to content that is clean and healthy. By doing this we can all do our part to tackle crime in a positive and meaningful way and it only costs pennies per day. Visit my online store at
I thank you and your kids will also thank you!"
