Nerd at the Beach

This is what nerds do when we are at the beach and given tools. We don’t build sand castles. We build archaeological sites.

Behold. A Neolithic settlement.

There are ditches and fortified dirt bank walls. There is also a communal animal pen, round houses, dolmens, and a stone circle for astronomy.


It should be noted that the stone circle is actually two circles because the tilt of the Earth and orbit had shifted the constellations over a period of 1,000 years.

There are also smoke holes in the top of the round houses, and giant granite passage tombs.

The best part, though, is after I retired back to the towel and seeing a curious kid approach and investigate this strange sand castle settlement.

Thus is the next generation of nerds born.
