The wide beach

In the afternoon the beach widens and the sand turns almost to white powder, so fine in squirks under my boots. I am still walking east closing in on the corner of the island, where I will head North

Dueodde Beach, Bornholm

They say they even exported loads of it to Sahara countries, as if they didn’t have sand enough… “But not like the sand here” They say proudly
