The sky was blue with hardly any clouds

The sky was blue with hardly any clouds and the sand crushed between her toes;
And the water glistened as the sun hit it from every angle;
And children were laughing, screaming and splashing,
The bucket she filled with sand and tipped over quickly to make the perfect tower for her castle,
Sitting, working intently on her castle for hours until it was pure perfection
Finally the finished sand castle, looking as if it jumped out of a story book, became a part of her.
