On the Beach at Elba

  • M. Dane Picard


In June of 1987, disregarding a one-star rating in the Michelin guide to Italy and a pinched bank account, I took a car ferry from Piombino to Portoferraio, went to 20 different beaches around the island of Elba, and came away with 20 sacks of sand. To a geologist on the move in the spring, Elba is not a one-star tourist attraction but rather the mysterious remains of a spectacular mountain range, part of Tyrrhenia, a land that vanished beneath the sea.
