After briefings they all began the assignment on the Gulf Coast…..
“One could see across the small ciudad to Laguna El Barril where the water in the sand pit was beautifully blue, which made sense if it was as deep as it was purported to be but it was surrounded by the pure white of the sand for which it was named.
