We're continuing our series called Beach Life on Daybreak, bringing you stories from the shores of lakes in the southern Interior.

Today -- the meaning of sandcastles.

Daybreak host Chris Walker meets up with Jacob and his grandmother, Hilda, on the shores of Okanagan Lake.

Jacob, 9, is an expert sandcastle builder, who has built "at least 500" in his career. He specializes in "Greek stuff" because he loves the complexity of the structures.
