The most wonderful aspects of sand are hidden from the normal human eye. For a greater appreciation of the beauty of sand I recommend you check out Gary Greenberg’s photographs of what sand looks like under a microscope – Sand Looks Unbelievably Cool Under a Microscope.
It really is amazing stuff.
One of life’s great little pleasures for me is walking barefoot in golden sand.
I find sand fascinating. I love playing with sand on the beach. As I mentioned in my a previous post, I am planning to spend some building a sandcastle this summer if I can get to the beach.
Wells By The Sea is a beautiful beach with a vast expanse of golden sand. A lovely place for barefoot walking.
I would also like to pass on my thanks to Why Me? by An Ordinary Girl for nominating me for a quote challenge.
So here are 3 nice quotes about sand –
“Write your troubles in the sand and the blessings in stone” (Unknown).
“The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.” (Jean-Paul Sartre)
“In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.” (Rachel Carson)
Are you a beach lover? Where is your favourite bit of sand/beach?When did you last build a sandcastle?
