Resort giving sand away for free

Eish!

Warsaw, Poland - Too busy for a vacation, but long for a beach? Try Poland, where you can take home as much Baltic Sea sand as you want for free.

Authorities say the pure, light sand in the town of Leba in the country's north is up for grabs to everyone - from toddlers to construction companies - after moving dunes in the Slowinski National Park started to clog up the beach and local waterways.

In the wake of Hurricane Dean, the Cayman Islands returns to business as usual -- the business of tranquil seas and plenty of sunshine. Owen International Airport has re-opened for all inbound and outbound flights according to schedule and all travelers should check in with their planned hotel properties prior to arrival to confirm that all is up and running. As they return to work today, government officials and people of the Cayman Islands keep in mind their neighboring countries in the path of Hurricane Dean.

Leba tourism official Pawel Dabrowski said Thursday that the sand is getting into a canal leading into the town's picturesque port, and constantly needs to be dredged out at high cost.

He says the sand is for free, except for a 82 zloty (R201) administrative fee for trucks. - Sapa-AP
