The Essential Beach Packing “Do Not Forgets”

Sometimes, packing is a daunting task. We’ve all been there, luggage open on our bed, piles of clothes surrounding it, with a mental checklist of what to bring. And we’ve also all been there when you’re 2 hours into your drive to your vacation and you think “uh oh”, because you just remembered you were supposed to bring something and somehow forgot it.

Well this list is meant to hopefully serve as a little reminder of some random things that would likely slip your mind while packing! Most items are things you can buy once you arrive, but paying $15 for sunscreen at the beach as opposed to bringing your same $9 sunscreen from home can make all the difference.

2

Don’t forget that important arrival packet we mail you!!! It has your passes to get into the area you’re staying in, as well as your code or keys to get into your property– and you don’t want to have to make an extra trip to the office after 12 hours in the car, you want to get to your house or villa and hop right into the pool because by then, you’re on vacation mode!

Build the Perfect Sand Castle on Hilton Head Island

Building a nice sand castle really isn’t all that hard. You just need to know how to prepare, what tools to use, and how to build. Hilton Head Island has perfect sand for building sandcastles because we have very flat beaches. That’s why Hilton Head Island has sand castle competitions every year.

In order to build a big and strong sand castle you have to know where to build it first.  Start by digging a large deep hole just far enough away from where high tide will come; that way the waves will not crash on your castle.  Don’t worry necessarily how wide the hole is, but concentrate on how deep it is.  You’ll want the hole to be deep enough that a puddle of water is at the bottom with wet sand.  Wet sand is the number one ingredient in making a stong base for the sandcastle.

After digging the hole, choose the area near by you will build on and pat it down hard so that is hard and flat.  After flattening the surface, start scooping with your hand from the hole and pouring the wet sand on the foundation.  Once the foundation is covered in wet sand, pat the wet sand down hard and flat like you did before (make sure and do this part quickly after pouring, wet sand will start to “freeze/harden up” and will be harder to take shape when the water sinks out of it).  Now your foundation is very strong and you can start to build up.

Continue to pour layer after layer of wet sand on top of your base and lightly flattening it out; after layer 2 or 3, stop patting the layers down with your hand and simply let water and gravity do the rest for the rest of the layers.  Continue pouring and flattening wet sand on your tower until it is the desired height.  This is how to build an effective “tower“.  Build as many as you would like, and remember dont build too high to where it will fall down.  After the tower is the desired height, you can whip out some hand tools we will go over later, or wait and build some walls and staircases connecting the towers first before you do your sculpting.

To build a wall connecting your towers, you will have to use a different technique than when you built your towers.  Insted of plopping layer on top of layer like the tower, when building a wall, you should make it using “bricks“.  Simply scoop a handfull of wet sand from your well, let the water drain a second or two in your hands, then place the sand inbetween the towers.  After you have placed the sand on the ground, shape the brick with your palms or fingers.  Start with a bottom layer, then a second layer, then a third layer of bricks and build up to your desired height.

In order to build stair cases, simply use the brick method again building “away” from your wall.  You will neaten up the stairs as well as the rest of the castle later on with your tools.

The tools you will need are an actual shovel for digging the hole, simple small sand castle bucket for pouring wet sand,  a paint scraper for flattening the wet sand, a butter knife for carving, tooth picks for detailed designing, and a straw for blowing away loose sand in hard to get areas.  You may think up of a new tool of your own, whatever works for you!

Book with Beach Properties of Hilton Head  and vacation on the Island.  Come build YOUR sand castle with your family and friends!  Right now Beach Properties of Hilton Head has some great offers going on so be sure to take a look at our specials page to save big!  If you can’t come this summer no problem!
