Long after everyone leaves

Abandoned to the waves
Grand Bend, ON
July 2013
Thematic's emptiness week starts here.
This glorious example of the vanishing art of sand castle building sat alone overlooking the waves of Lake Huron. Whoever built it was long gone.

Great Lakes aren't like oceans, mind you, so there was little risk of high tide swallowing the unseen stranger's work. But given the inevitable effects of wind and errant kids, dogs and seagulls, I'm guessing this ephemeral creation was gone by dusk, yet it continues to exist in pixellated form. Strange how that works.

Your turn: Who built this? What's his/her/their story?

Tiny sand people built it, Carmi.
