I love beaches. I love the waves hitting the beach or me while I swim near the shore. I love feeling the sand under my feet.
I've only started my collection when our daughter was about 2 years old. To date, I've about 20 small bottles of them. It would have been more if only I remember to get some everytime we visit a beach.
So, what are the advantages of collecting sand?
- It doesn't spoil.
- Small and convenient to transport.
- Practically, no cost.
- The collection is nice to use as a wall filler.
- Not prone to theft like my coin collection (a former household apparently is also interested in becoming a numismatist, he he he)
- If you're fed up with your collection, you can use everything in preparing concrete or probably in an aquarium
- Maintenance free
