Bill Pavlacka has been building sand castles as a hobby for nearly thirty years.

On most days you can find him near the Hotel Del on Coronado Island. Check out the Hotel Del's live webcam to see if you can spot him on the beach today. Click on the thumbnail to view:

This documentary is several years old (2004), but great for learning a bit of history about Bill.
