I’ve been around, and seen a lot of sand, from Maine to California and Mexico to Japan. When I announced I was going to Pensacola everyone talked about the wonderful white sand beaches in the area. Now, I know that sand comes in a plethora of shades and textures. The sand of the Arizona desert, for instance, is sort of tan and chunky. The beaches of Puerto Penasco have sand which is a bit finer and lighter colored, while the sand at Acapulco Bay is somewhat coarser and gray with a rainbow of speckles throughout. Still, sand is sand, or so I thought.
