your Odyssey Sea Glass News, Issue #038 Ahhh, Sea Breezes
June 24, 2010
Hi,

Lin_and_David
Ahhh, the Sea and Salty Breezes!:

How are things going wherever you find yourselves?

Hopefully, you've had the chance to hit the beaches during these past few weeks. The weather here is really nice. Since we are in the tropics in the Southern Hemisphere, it is now winter, and the nights are a chilly 73 degrees (22 C), making the evenings just as pleasant as can be to stroll around town.

And the beach is delightful as always!


Here is a little reminder to check out the upload features on the fun page, where you can contribute your comments, questions, and photos on what you find at the beach or just about anything to do with beach glass.

We 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.
