Can you guess what this is?
A relative of mine, for whom no urban myth is too crazy to forward an email on, sent me a beautiful photo essay. I was sceptical, but this story turns out to be true according to Snopes.com.
The photo essay is from the blog Fredrik and Crew on Maiken (Maiken is an oceangoing yacht). The “beach” is a floating layer or raft of pumice, rained down on the ocean by an active volcano nearby.
Lying on it with an umbrella drink might be a tiny bit uncomfortable this century, though.
