Friday Fictioneers is an online group of bloggers who each week follow a photo prompt on Rochelle's blog - http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/ - and write a 100-word piece of flash fiction.

Juan built castles for a living. Every day he took his tools to the beach, collected damp sand from the tide-mark, and constructed dreams.
Tourists would watch and take photographs – some even threw money into Juan’s bucket, although never enough - and each night drunks destroyed his work.
“When will you get a proper job?” Lucia wailed, “The rent is due.”
“I’m an artist,” Juan replied grandly and returned to his work.
But the next night he came home to find Lucia in the street, surrounded by their possessions.
He took her to the beach and built her a house.
