The Sand Dollar
There are lovely sights to behold on Destin beach
From the beautiful white sands of Destin, FL to the sea creatures that never cease to amaze even the most skeptic. One such creature is the sand dollar, classified as an echinoderm, the sand dollar typically lives buried in the sand of shallow coastal waters. Sand dollars can often be found on the beaches of Destin.
Legends abound as to the mystery of the sand dollars, some refer to the sand dollar as coins of the lost people of Atlantis or mermaid coins. Some Christians speculate that Jesus Christ left the sand dollar as a symbol of the wounds he suffered on the cross. Including the symbolism of the dove representing peace, resurrection, and hope. Even the Greek mythology has legends of the sand dollar representing Aristotle’s lantern.
