As you know, I’m a bit of a wargamers and military history nut. I like military history, painting toy soldiers and the like. I was therefore pleasantly surprised when I ran across a castle here in Singapore.
The lady and I had decided to head down the East Coast for a walk on the edge of the Straits and a bite to eat by the seaside. Sand in the toes, a surf and turf and a bottle of something cold, a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon and evening.
What a pleasant surprise. Walking along the beach we ran across a sand castle. This was not the pile of sand I used to build as a child but rather a proper castle.
Walking along a bit further and we ran into a castle, defenders on the walls ready to repel the evil … well, evil whatevers.
I was impressed with the level of detail such as the stones in the walls and tiles on the roofs.
The soldiers and flags came from a popular toy set but the builder’s skill was amazing.
This castle was a big one.
A great way to spend a Sunday evening and when it was dark and there was no one around … I got to jump on the castle and flatten it 🙂
