A DAY AT GRAYTON BEACH

 

A walk on the white sands quickly reveals why these are rated as some of the finest beaches in the world. It’s because the sand not only looks different, but it actually feels different under your feet. You’ll notice a faint squeak with every step: that’s because the granules are very fine and nearly round in shape, composed of almost 100 percent quartz. If you pick up a few grains you’ll notice they are not really white but almost clear, and they reflect and sparkle in the rays of the sun.
