These are the newest additions to my sand collection. If you click on the picture, you can get a bigger view and see how different they all are! I put the sand out on these plates to dry out before putting it in the jars. I will try to remember to take a photo of my collection next time I'm at school. I keep them at school because the kids like to look at them. I only started collecting when I was in Spain the summer of 2002 and dont have very many jars in my collection because I only collect from beaches that I actually go to. Online there are lots of people who will trade sand or send you sand, but that just doesnt appeal to me so much. Each jar of sand that I have hold memories. I am, however, going to try to send my extra sand out to one of those collectors and try to get some sand from Coney Beach in Manhattan. I went there many summers ago and totally forgot to get some sand. I would love to add that to my collection.
I'm a high school science teacher currently living my dream of teaching out in bush Alaska. I'm always up for new adventures and like to travel anywhere and everywhere. This blog is a way to keep in touch with friends and family, journal about life, and share my experiences with the world.
