Sand: Sword Beach, France

Some really cool sand that my friend Claudia brought back from France. I especially like the purple shell fragments. This image is magnified 40x from the actual size. If anyone else goes to the beach on holiday, please bring me back some sand!

Sword Beach is located on the coast of Normandy in northern France, and is also where the British landed on D-Day in World War II.
