9/22/10 Aguadilla Puerto Rico Sea Glass. THE FIRST EXPERIENCE

My first beach glass experience
Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. We were staying in San Juan and although a lovely place, I had my mind set on seeing the surf beaches of Rincon and Aguadilla.
We rented a car and traveled the four hours in dreadful traffic but I believe it was well worth it.
It was about 2:00 pm in the afternoon with a steady westwardly wind. The surf seems pretty hard to me and there were about 15 surfers hitting it all the way home. Just what I came for.
While resting along the concrete seawall, my eye came to rest on a sparkling jewel on the beach. SEAGLASS! I grabbed the little tropical fish-printed bucket I had brought along with me from earlier beach days and started walking down the short, boulder covered beach before me.
This was about 15 minutes worth of work. I think I did pretty good considering I'm just a little ol' country girl from Missouri!
