Pink Sand

I woke up this morning literally dreaming of being at the beach, soaking up the much needed vitamin D. But of course, not just any beach, but PINK sand beach. Apparently, I have a thing for  microscopic coral insects.  After the insect dies, the wave action crushes the bodies and washes the remains ashore and mixes it in with the sand and bits of coral.

What a way to start your Monday morning huh? Shout out to the fallen insects who make these beaches beautiful! pink3pinksandPB1800380f84fbb16de1cfd4196709270e460a81Harbour-Island-3.jpgPink-Beach-of-Barbuda
