A trip to the beach on a sunny day usually means relaxing on a deckchair with an ice cream, paddling with the kids or topping up the tan.
But for one visitor to Bridlington South Beach the building of a sandcastle with his children took on a new dimension.
Adam Lewis, who is a sales estimator, set about making his kids ‘king of the castle’ by creating a huge 18 ft by 12 ft sandcastle that had locals and visitors stopping and staring in amazement.
“The whole build took about six hours.”’said Adam.
“My brother-in-law Philip and me did all the digging and shaping and my wife made one or two smaller castles and the kids helped whack some buckets on the main castle.” explained Adam.
“I’ve always made sandcastles on the beach for since I was a lad, usually with my dad who’s now 71.”
Adam was also very pleased with the texture of the Bridlington sand which was, in his opinion, perfect for building sandcastles.
And when asked by the Echo how much sand was used…
“I’d say probably around 5 tons of sand was moved, but the pictures don’t do it justice – to be fair they never do.”
