Lavender Sea Glass

Finally, I’ve found a piece of purple sea glass.

Ever since I knew it existed, I have been searching for one. I’m always excited to find any colour, and treasure the green, white, and brown pieces that I have as well. But to find a rare colour is a thrill.

Now, if I could only find a red piece…

Sea Urchins

Probably because of the storm we had a few weeks ago, the shore is littered with sea urchin shells in a way that it never was last year. (As well as mounds of seaweed and driftwood.)

This makes walking barefoot on the beach a treacherous task, but it also makes for amazing beach finds.

My daughter gathered a bucket of these delicate shells, collecting them like little treasures; my son and I made shapes with them on the beach and I photographed them.

It is wonderful what we can find on the shore.
