More photos from the beach

Washed up crab pot

This is my favorite sight to see!! A rock wash!

I never tire of the sunsets!

A lavender gem!

Often, these tracks were paths for my kids to follow!

Child #3 found this a filled it up

I love the morning light!

Another beauty!

These are from a surprise rock wash I found

I love pink time! As the sun sets everything is magical and glowy!

One afternoon there was a real, live bagpiper! He played "Amazing Grace" and it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

I love this sunset and the smooth sand - all to me! I'm so lucky!

Soaking it in

The knowledge that we are moving has caused me to see our beautiful home and coastside with new eyes and I have been trying my best to capture it with my iPhone camera as well. Here are a few shots of the seemingly common things that I will miss and of course, I have been trying to fit in all the sea glassing I can. The beach hasn't disappointed!

We saw this on our walk home after Joy School, one beautiful day.

Can you see the Snowy White Egret? These are always a delight to see on the beach and in our marsh.

The way the sun hits the sand first thing in the morning is a favorite of mine.

This gives an idea of the power of the ocean, moving and rolling beach items around.

Bowls of littles that I have found on my beach runs

More littles!

Lovely blue - just sitting there waiting for me to pick it up and bring it home:)

Times Three!

It has been an amazing week! I've been three times and had such fun collecting sea glass. Today was the first time anyone else was out there. Here are some photos of the beauties that I found on my beach walk.

These are just large pieces of pottery and other random household items the waves washed up. I love the heart rock!

Aren't these just like gemstones!?

I don't know if this photo captures the size and beauty of these larger pieces. Perfect for jewelry.

Lots of blues on this day. One really large, unusual color of blue that went into my "candy jar" collection of sea glass.

And RED! I found 4 pieces in the past 3 days!!!
The pieces washing up have been so big and polished - just like looking for Easter Eggs! A red letter week for certain! But I have to admit the moment I want to remember was sitting with Child #3 when she was taking a break from ride her bike. She climbed on my lap and we had some bunny fruit snacks. The absolute peace and delight at that moment has filled my heart all week. Children are so much more beautiful and enjoyable than sea glass!

All in a Day's Work

I found a lady who makes jewelry and was interested in purchasing some of my larger pieces. We met and she choose some pieces and it was such fun to see her enjoying the beauty of these pieces. I was delighted to make a little money and enjoyed our visit.

Later in the day when the sun came out, I found these on the beach :

Then when I went to pick up the kids from school, I stopped and photographed these forget-me-nots. They are all along the road and I love seeing them. Aren't they simply beautiful?
Here is a closer shot:
I am lucky to be surrounded by beauty!

Plastic or glass?

The beach has been fairly smooth so when I saw this, I was sure it was plastic.

I still wasn't sure....
Until I picked it up.
It is a real red piece - all dented like a chewed wad of bubble gum.

So glad I went out this morning!!

Sea Glass for Sale!

Tomorrow is a garage sale and along with all our "stuff" I thought I would set out some bottles of sea glass to see if anyone is interested. If interested, make a comment or contact me and I will save it for you to pick up at another time!

 I can add a tag and a little charm on any of these bottles if you'd like.

This is 4.25 inches high and 1.24 inches in diameter. $10

This is 5 inches high and the base is 1.75 inches. $15
This is two inches high and 2 inches wide. The glass is a heavier glass. $ 12

Another option:

I can fill this with glass if it more what you are looking for. It would most likely be about $50.
I can sell a bag of sea glass for you to place in your own bottle or bowl. Send me a message and we can talk.

Morning Fog

We have had some beautiful days! I have been able to hit the beach and find sea glass here and there. It has been wonderful. This morning, it was foggy but still I went out with Child #3. We waded across the creek to the spot I saw yesterday but was unable to reach because I was by myself and group of men were making me nervous, but that is a different story!

Anyway, it was a nice black spot, full of rocks and mixed with glass.

At one spot, I saw a lovely blue piece and asked Child #3 not to pick it up while I photographed it.

 She promptly stepped on it! So there it is a little squished!
Here is the collection we found on our foggy morning:
Now, the sun is coming out and the tide is coming up bringing up more pieces for this afternoon!
PS I just got my business cards in the mail. I am official- ha! I sell collections of sea glass :) Now I just need to sell some of the bottles!
