Back in January, the El Niño rains swept away a lot of the sand from Coronado beach, and my favorite lifeguard tower is hidden for safe-keeping until the sand comes back. In the meantime, the Sandcastle Man is making good use of the remaining sand, creating these gorgeous castles day after day. This Ohio family was visiting in Solana Beach but traveled down to Coronado for their mom’s birthday photo session. I was glad this castle was there to create a fun backdrop (and some shade!) on a bright February day. The family was equally fun! We had a blast!
