Sand castle!

The very first day at Dauphin Island, Josh and Al got busy building a sand castle.

 Pretty soon, everyone was getting involved.

 There was a whole lot of digging going on!

                                Eli was digging himself a hole

Adam and Josh dug Claire a tide pool for her Barbie boat

Papa dug just for the fun of it - every day.

Emeri found a rock that someone left behind.   The treasure hunt that "rocks"!  
It was quite the trend in Hillsboro when our kids lived there.
 Now she needed to find a place to hide it for someone else to find.

Every day, more improvements were made.

Don't know if the next people who rented the house added on to it or not.

Buried at Dauphin Island

Who doesn't want to get buried in the sand? 

Staci showed Claire how to play Sugar Cookie!

First you get wet.....then you roll in the sand!

Sugar Cookie!

 Run back into the water to get cleaned off!

Clams and crabs

 There were a lot of clams on the beach and it was fun to pick them up.

If you put them in your hand along with some sand, then added water,
the clams would try to burrow into your fingers.

One afternoon, a plastic bag brushed up against Adam when he was swimming.  

Inside the bag was this poor little crab!
Perhaps he had been in the "belly of the baggie" for 3 days?

Adam rescued the poor little thing.
Have a good life, Jonah the crab!
