Building Sand Castles at Corona del Mar State Beach
The warm sunlight makes their skin glow, and the moist sand sticks to their feet and hands. Sea gulls and brown pelicans soar right overhead, while the sounds of the surf lull all into relaxation. Parents and children dig into the sand, scooping up piles to be shaped into sand castles. Some will be works of art, and others will attempt to be. Siblings laugh and giggle while their parents gently coach and help them, trying to add turrets, a gate, and a moat. This is a favorite pastime with families along Corona del Mar State Beach, a half-mile by 30-acre cove of coastal bluffs and sandy beach just south of Newport Beach. Concrete fire rings, clean public restrooms, volleyball courts, and a small concessionaire stand with beach rentals are here. The waves are safe enough for toddlers to wade and swim in, washing off all that sand castle making sand.
