It was a warm sunny windy day on Amelia Island. I was on vacation with my family. I was filling up buckets with ocean water. My younger brother Jimmy was filling buckets up with sand and all while my youngest brother Nick was screaming when the tide came up and barely touched his feet. We had decided to build a moat for the sand castle so we began digging it out. When we were done that the water was flowing calmly around the moat. Jimmy decided we needed a river from the moat to the Atlantic Ocean. So we dug a river out but we were going downhill so all the water from the moat was going back into the ocean. Jimmy put a stopper in the middle of the river so that we didn’t lose any more water. Then we took a stick and wrote 2011 in the sand and my mom took a picture of us with the sand castle.
