One of the best parts about living where other people go on vacation is that we residents can experience our own vacations whenever we want. If you find yourselves welcoming family and friends on their vacations this summer, there are plenty of free, fun activities to take advantage of.

A popular activity taking place at East Beach is sandcastle lessons. Offered for the last several summers, the lessons are led by professional sandcastle builder Emerson Schreiner. He shows budding sand architects how to construct their own beautiful castles. Some equipment is provided, but bring your own bucket and shovel if you have them.

Mary Beth Bassett is the public relations director for the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Board of Trustees.
