A Trip to ''White beach''

Can pollution be a boon to mankind? I dont think so. But Rosignano, about one hour from Pisa has been attracting tourists in large numbers. It is famous for its white beach. The sand is formed by 90% of limestone and 10% of calcium chloride from the near by company ''Solvay''. 

It was a good trip to Rosignano when I had visited Pisa. The first time I saw the ''white beach''. We just went there for the beach and took bath too.  It was a cloudy day and  easy to differentiate the sky, beach and water. But later in the day when the sun came up it was bright and hard to differentiate the water, horizon and beach. It was a wonderful white experience.
