A day at the beach

Honestly, its not mUch of a beach. Its on Lake Martin, a lovely manmade lake in central Alabama.

But the sand, a mix of eroded ahale and granite atop layers of gooey gooey squish and our state’s signature red clay.

It grinds the kids’ knees a rosy red, but were for hours and a couple hundred dollars from the nearest beach. They’ll settle for substitutes.

It does make decent (if primitive) sand castles, though. The goo and gravel combine like cement, as granite pebbles jag out like seige-busting spikes.
