...on such a winter's day. Well, winter is coming in the near future, so there.
Lin and I leave Washington for the first short leg of our move to the beaches of N. Peru on Monday. And as the words of the Mamas and Papas hit above (showing our age), California is our first stop for three days. We will be visiting friends and family in Santa Cruz area, a great place for beach glass fanatics like you.
Here in Washington, the Pacific Northwest of the USA,the wind has been the strongest and most persistent we have seen it in past 3 years. Unfortunately, we just haven't had the time to do what we want to do...hit the shore for the beach glass treasures...So we await reports as they come in from those of you who are taking advantage of less crowded days at the beach, low tides, and heavier wave action to bring the beach to us!
Soon we should be getting some reports on what the storm-scoured beaches are producing. Of course, the storm season cycle also replenishes many beaches with "new" old glass from erosion of bluffs on the top of which used to exist homesteads or dumps, not to mention wash-outs of gullies where old trash from years gone by can finally reach the beach. This consists of shards, of course, but is the beach glass of the futures years.
But now...our greetings to you, visitors who are visiting our site here from your home countries of....Taiwan (Li ho), Bermuda (Hello, hello); and, of course, Jamaica (rock steady, mon…).
Now, if I got those wrong, I hope you'll let me know so I can correct our list here.
Here is a little reminder to check out the upload features on "Catch of the Day,", where you can contribute your photos on what you find at the beach today (tonight, tomorrow, whatever). It works so smooooooth.
If you have more than one photo you would like to share, feel free to send us an email by clicking on the pic of us above.
For this week, we would invite any of you to share a short story of your beach impressions (funny, sad, or exciting) and get a link to the website or blog of your choice.
For those of you who have just recently signed up, this newsletter is an update on the new features and changes in the last couple of weeks.
