A town in Alabama is finally getting some of its sand back after almost twenty years.
The mayor of Gulf Shores got a box of sand in the mail with an apology.
It seems a tourist took a bag of sand from the beach as a memento during a family trip in the1990s.
But after recently learning it's illegal to take sand off the beaches in the area, she felt compelled to do the right thing and called the mayor to say she was sorry.
The mayor is inviting the family to visit the Gulf Shores again and is offering to pardon them for taking the sand if they help put it back where it belongs.
