I used to live in Portugal. Actually, that’s not completely true, but it’s a lot easier to say than “I lived in Terceira” because no one knows where that is. It’s an island. Therefore, you’d think sand, right? Well, it just so happens that the only two beaches there were man made; it was more of a cliff island. But here’s some sand from those beaches; the further container has all the mini sand dollars and shells I found within that handful. I have fond memories of the beach, of swimming in the ocean, of walking through the towns, of enjoying that strong wind! Although I hated living in Terceira because I was lonely, I absolutely miss the beauty of…well, everything!
