My Obsession with Sea Glass

Just had to share these little jewels with the rest of the world!  This sea glass is different from most of the glass that I scour the beach for, it comes from a beach in Port Townsend, WA.  It's sort of a secret, so I am not going to reveal too much - maybe e-mail me and I will give you the location!

Suffice to say, it is a LONG walk out from the parking lot to find this glass, and you do have to hunt a little.  The last time I went, I think we walked over 2 miles to start finding the bigger pieces - and then we were so engrossed in picking up as much as we could find, didn't notice that the tide was quickly swallowing the beach up.  Yikes! Rumor is that this beach used to be the town dump.  Not very glorious, but that's where you find the best stuff.

Very small and very sea worn - perfect for jewelry making?  I don't know, I just love to sift through all of the colors.

Hoping to go up to Whidbey Island this weekend for more beach treasure hunting!

I love sea/beach glass too. I even made a squidoo lens about it. I love finding all sorts of stuff on the beach!
