If you’ve been following my posts, you know that I have been waiting (impatiently) for the snow to melt. I have been itching to go to the beach, but until this week there was so much ice and snow that it wouldn’t have been safe, let alone enjoyable.
The snow is not completely gone, but the beach is finally accessible.
I took a drive to my favourite spot for collecting sea glass, and spent more than two hours wandering the shoreline.
It was bliss.
I was the only person on the beach, with the salt breeze and the rushing water as company. The tide was out and the sea glass was plentiful.
The only difficulty was leaving.
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…
Once I start searching for sea glass, I can’t seem to stop.
This time, along with the typical green, white, and brown pieces, I was ecstatic to find these unusual colours: gold, olive, icy blue, and grey.
And so my collection grows.
We took a day trip to a nearby beach, one I had not been to before.
We soaked up the hot sun, waded out past the sandbars, and wandered along the rocky shoreline. It was a perfect summer afternoon.
And I brought home the most amazing amount of sea glass I have ever collected in one afternoon.
