Most people don't know that our sand is not white, like the sugar sand in Florida, it's very dark. Some call it "cinnamon" color but that's a stretch. It's just very dark and very hot when the sun shines on it. When the sand is wet, the light is caught and the sand twinkles like little diamonds. Beautiful in a different way.
