Taking the beach with us

I love the ocean. For me, there's nothing like sitting on the warm sand, reading a good book, while the waves crash in the distance. Growing up, if we were going out of state for a while, we would collect some sand from the beach, put it in a jar and take it with us. It would be a little reminder of home.

I always loved this idea, and I have some pretty fond memories from those jars.

Last year, we took our daughter to the beach for the first time. It may be silly, but my wife was willing to let me be sentimental, and we collected some sand for a jar to go in her room.

This is a picture of our footprints ... (feetprints?) ... (the prints left by our feet?).

I've also been told it makes a great optical illusion.

Are the prints indented or popping out?

That really is an optical allusion. Cool! I think that is such a cool way to remember your vacation.
