I went down to Galveston on Saturday to check out the sand castle building contest taking place on East Beach. It was really interesting to see how seriously some of the participants are and to observe some of the different ways they solve the various logistics problems. One big logistical problem is having enough water on hand to mix with the sand so that it sticks together and then to keep it moist so that it doesn't dry out and crumble.
