Your next step is to pick an ideal location
on the beach. You don’t want to be too close to the water, where the water is going to
knock over your sandcastle,
but you don’t want to be too far up-shore because the sand is really light and it’s
going to be really hard to pack.
Also, you want to remember to give yourself plenty of space around other people. Respect
other people’s beach area. Be sure to stay clear of dogs. If there are kids playing,
just give yourself plenty of room so when you build your sandcastle, and you have all
of your equipment and supplies, you aren’t in anybody’s way. That’s the best bet. You
want to remember not to pick a location too far from the ocean because you’re going to
be walking back and forth picking up buckets of water and shoveling sand, so you want to
be somewhat close, but out of the reach of the actual water itself.
