The rain and wind were ramping up, when we saw the Channel 10 Storm Ranger truck, with its radar on top, Channel 10 van and car in the public beach parking lot.
Before the wind was too gusty, this little one was walking with her dad right outside my front door!
I have to go home (to Village Green, Pennsylvania) on Wednesday or Thursday, but will be back on the beach Monday (Labor Day – if there’s a shoe horn to let me in!) or probaby Tuesday, when the crowds lessen! Hope to see you on the beach! I will be here until September 20.
I’m going home to see my #2 child, Michelle, and #4 grandchild, Riley, who moved to Austin, Texas. They have reservations to fly out of Houston this Thursday (if the flooding allows them to get out!)
We’ll take them back to the airport on Sunday, and hope to drive back down to Lewes on Monday.
Here is 6 year old Isaac, from Forest Hills, Maryland, and his ever changing castle
Tyler 3 1/2, with his dad Rob, mom Vivienne, and sister Sophia 5, from Columbia, MD, were still working on this castle when I left the beach today.
Although it was really windy, I enjoyed building this castle today.
I love that the 4:30 ferry just came into the frame as I took my photo.
It was so nice meeting this family from Albany, NY.
Dad Greg is holding Sawyer, almost 2; Parker is 8; Mom Stephanie; and Ashlyn 5.
Parker 8, Ashlyn 5, and Sawyer, almost 2.
Parker wanted to know how I could finish all of the things on my castle in one day. I told him it’s because I don’t do anything else when I am on the beach. I don’t eat lunch, and don’t sit and rest, and don’t play in the water – just do these sandcastles. That’s why people started calling me the Sandcastle Lady.
Someone came and destroyed castles last night, but I was able to finish building this one, by 5 o’clock.
It is my hope to teach as many kids as I can, to have more creators than destroyers.
I met this family when Vira was just a toddler, and love to see them come to build with me!
Beautiful family, speaking three languages fluently (French, Russian and English.)

Parker 8, mom Stephanie, and Ashlyn 5, from Albany came back to build again! (Parker insisted that I be in the photo!)
The wind changed, and brought a cool onshore wind today. After a late start, and teaching a nice family, I was able to finish a castle by 5:30.
