secret sand

I know its old so you may have already seen it, but being at the seaside all last week made me remember this article from last summer featuring photographs of sand magnified 250 times. Isnt it amazing to think that what appear just to be little grains are secretly tiny shells, small crystals, and a million other unique shapes? 
It makes you realize how old (not to mention intricate) the ocean is, which is one of my very favorite things about it. Im sure Felix had no idea that this is what he had such a lovely time squishing around in. If it looked just like this to the naked eye he wouldve tried to eat more of it.
