Back to the beach and yes the sand is as white as the snow. But it feels like very fine soft flour when you walk in it. One of our local beaches was voted #1 in America. It was this one, known as Siesta Key. The sand has so many crystals in it that it sparkles just like snow. I wish you were able to take your shoes off and be able to walk across the landscape just to feel the texture. Just to relax.
