For as many beaches as I have been on you would think that I would have a huge collection of beach glass. Sadly, not so.. But I have decided to be more intentional in looking for it and the past month brought me a couple of opportunities to do just that.
Our trip to Maine last month was not necessarily a beach trip but we were able to walk out on the land bridge in Bar Harbor and my wonderful husband found me a couple of pieces without much problem. Now one was most likely a beer bottle and the other is a bowl that really has not been smoothed down much yet but hey–it was glass and it was on a beach. So it counts, right?
Look at those neat barnacles starting to form on it. I think it is pretty cool.
My sister and I decided to take a “Sissy Day” when we were all together at Lakeside and after dithering around on what to do for awhile we finally decided to go look for beach glass. Now it probably wasn’t the best time as it was not after a storm or anything like that but it was fun and she managed to find her first pieces ever and I found quite a few on my own.
We visited a couple of beaches and the best by far was the Huron beach by the lighthouse. I found most of mine there and even though the green pieces are microscopic, they are pretty and are a great addition to my collection.
It’s a fun activity and I think I got my sister hooked on it now. You never know what you might find and it is just fun to search and see how good you are at spotting something special amongst the shells, rock and sand.
Are you a beach comber? I would love to hear about your best find so don’t forget to Comment for a Cause for Black Mountain Home for Children, Youth and Families.
