My iTunes: Head Over Heels by The Go-Go's
As I sit here in my non-air-conditioned house and melt, I think back to my one and only visit to the beach this summer. The weather seems reversed -- at the beach I was cold and wore several layers (even though I went in early July) and now as school starts I can't seem to stay cool.
Some of the kids that went on the beach trip to Bournemouth built a sandcastle fortress. It used to be one of my favorite things to do, when I was not allowed the the water that is. Although building castles with molds was fun, my favorite kind were drip castles. My mom taught me how to make them, and they always ended up reminding me of Lord Licorice's castle in the Candy Land game. These castles were much more traditional -- appropriate for an English seaside holiday, I dare say.
