Sandcastles in the sky

Sand castles, when I was a kid I would spend hours making sandcastles. Mostly I made them on the beach at the campground that my parents and grandparents went to all the time. I made everything from little forts that I would destroy with my GI Joes to an entire sand community that was about to get squashed under my feet while I pretended to be Godzilla.

I was never very good at making sand castles. They didnít look all that great, nor where they generally all that creative. Mostly it was just piles of sand that had been shaped into buildings, forts or actual castles. The best I ever did was one that actually kind of looked like Fort Sumner from the Civil War. Yea, it was destroyed.

It has been at least 20 years since the last time I even attempted to make a castle. But If I did make one today, Iíd probably still want to destroy it. So when I saw these videoís I was enthralled by it. Sand Castles explodingÖ in reverse. Itís kind of neat to see them reform.

This makes me want to go to a beach with some black powder.

Strange as it may sound, it's kinda relaxing to watch...
