Welcome to the home of the Sand Dancers

I first encountered the sand sprites whilst walking in the Ynyslas Sand Dunes in Mid Wales. I spent many years building their trust and finally they allowed me to tell their story. It helped that my husband had hitchhiked through the Sahara desert and so was known to them.
