... beautiful beach in Cuba, some say in the Caribbean. The sand is fine and white like powder; the water is a layer cake of shades of blue making the sky seem almost violet in comparison. When the sun shines directly through the water it is crystalline and when a cloud displaces the sun for a moment it turns dark aquamarine. It is amazing how the sun dances on the water.
