Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
In our last trip to Playa Gigante, I got lost in the expanse of the beautiful desolate beach.
Yet, hidden beneath my feet and within the broad expanse, were wondrous details.
Ancient trees told tales of weathering storms and drifting among the high seas.
Their branches pointed to places they yearned to return, as they whispered harrowing tales of long ago.
Barnacles clung to a new life.
Flowers and gently sailing leaves landed silently in tide pools, floating peacefully.
Snails left trails of tears as they meandered through the sand.
The amazing grace of this wondrous miniature world saved me. I lost my place in this huge world, but found it again through the miracles beneath my feet. I was blind, but now I see.
