Building Sandcastles

A pair of children site on the beach building sandcastles with their dog. A parent or grandparent sits a little taller on the dunes to watch over the children and perhaps enjoy the sunshine and breezes. Off in the distance, it looks like there might be a port or marina. Sea gulls soar above everyone, enjoying their own fun at the beach.

This vintage drawing is the work of Elmer Boyd Smith (1860-1943). He wrote and illustrated The Seashore Book which was published in 1912.
