On the north side of the wee beach, Algy found a tiny, peaty burn, which trickled across the sand in front of the rusty rocks, on its way to the sea. The perfect spot for a castle! So he set to work, and built the best sandcastle that he could manage. Perhaps it wasn’t quite as grand as some he had heard of, but fluffy birds are not perfectly adapted for construction in sand…

In any case, it was the first sandcastle that Algy had ever made, and he was delighted with it. He created a grand entrance out of a strong stalk of kelp, and settled down to keep guard. All he had to do now was wait… for the tide to come in, and for the start of his Anniversary celebrations 🙂
