Playing along with Favourites over at Quilting in my Pyjamas.

Tonight I took the long walk home - and went via the beach.

While the day was mild the weather was overcast.

I hope you can get an idea from these pictures - children's sand fort and castle - quite an elaborate construction and still in tact even though there had been rain this afternoon.

Shells and rocks placed throughout the construction, along with the leaves and twigs from nearby trees and some seaweed to depict gardens.

It sure was my favourite thing today. Oh, and the fact that I finally recovered from DSL - otherwise known as Daylight Savings Lag - does anybody else get that at the start of Daylight Savings?
I love daylight savings it means there will be more evening beach walks, after a long day at the office, when I can check out what the children have been creating in the sand, but the first week just throws me right out of whack.
You should go on over to the House of Pyjamas and check out some other favourites.
I have still been hooking on the train so there will be an update soon - I think blogger has decided that I am allowed to play again (guess we'll see if this works?).
More new projects and even one finished one!
Hope your week has been a good one.
Have a wonderful weekend wherever you spend it.

Yep...I totally get DLS lag! I'm still not quite over it.

Love that fort. Built by some very creative kids and left as a gift for you to enjoy. (and now to share with us so we can enjoy it too!)

I love visiting the beach. That castle is quite unique. Thanks for sharing it. Wonder if the little builders know how famous their construction is? :-)

I find my body starts getting ready for daylight savings and I start waking up earlier!
Will look forward to seeing your finish and new projects.

Great favourite! What a wonderful discovery....we seem to be on the same wave(forgive the pun) length. Beaches and childhood treasures.
Just lovely! I just hated being so cold this past winter...don't laugh I know I live in Queensland!

Love the beach. We don't have DLS here, bummer, I hate having to try to remember what time it is in the rest of Oz.

We are still on Daylight Savings time in the US, but I dread going back to standard time next month.

Great favorite. I miss beach walks, we used to be able to do that when we lived on the Gulf Coast.
