Dylan confirmed he had no intention of swimming, and professed to prefer making sandcastles. Claudia glanced skeptically at the sand. She had enjoyed that particular pastime when she was younger, but now she suspected she would be aware of sand getting stuck under her fingernails and in her clothes. That would bother her.
