Pure White Sands

Stepping on to the beach for the first time you feel the sand melt away between your toes.  Perhaps there is sometime special to these beaches, lonely islands off the coast of north eastern Australia. According to the guide they are some of the most pure sands in the world, sometime like 98% pure silica. The trees closest to the beach seemed to be effected by the pure white of the sand, and were bleached out and stark against the lush tropical greens further up the island.

The vision must be followed by the venture.  It is not enough to stare up the steps – we must step up the stairs.  – Vance Havner
