Details: This poster shows a hammock over a white sandy beach. It is haning from a palm tree.
A beach, or strand, is a geological formation consisting of loose rock particles such as sand, gravel, shingle, pebbles, cobble, or even shell along the shoreline of a body of water. They occur along coastal areas where wave or current action deposit and rework sediments, or a stretch of land residing along a lake or river subject to erosion caused by rain fall. The hammock is a fabric sling used for sleeping or resting while suspended above ground. It normally consists of one or more cloth panels, or a woven network of twine or thin rope stretched with ropes between two firm points such as trees or posts.
