Beachcombing: Sea Glass

 

Each morning we hike along the beach for several kilometers, usually between 3 to 5 km (roughly 1.8 to 3.2 miles) while walking the dogs. Afterwards, we stop by the local boulangerie for cafe kreme and pain du chocolat (coffee and chocolate croissant . . . yummy!).

Often we see shells, driftwood, a stump (aptly named “stumpy”) that Sami was afraid of for over a week, of late we have found some very pretty pieces of sea glass, miniature shells, a few rather unique shells, terracotta rocks, and ceramic pieces with the remnants of their original glaze and pattern.

This is a collection of some of the pieces of sea glass we’ve found while walking along the beach. The colors are truly amazing, ambers, teals,¬†greens, blues, clear, olive, a few pieces of black, a few pieces of grey, a single piece of bright orange, light orange, light yellow, pale pink, light lavender, and a pale yellow. Only once have we found a shaped piece like a bottle stopper. Some are very tiny, some are rather large, some are so frosted that they look white. But each day brings something a little different and gives us something to look forward to while we walk the dogs.
