  6. I love the sand castles! And isn't that sunset shot on the beach beautiful? Red sky at night, sailor's delight... also a delight to the other people who enjoy its beauty. Oh, and I'm a sucker for pirates. I love old Errol Flynn movies, and my favorite ride at Disney was Pirates of the Caribbean.
