your Odyssey Sea Glass News #061 - Beach or Beached?!
February 03, 2012
Hi,

Lin_and_DavidHow are things in your neck of the woods?

Lin and I are hanging in here after a foot of snow kept us entranced and enclosed in the house for a few days. Then...

Lin and I took advantage of fair weather last Tuesday to head for North Beach near Port Townsend, WA; one of the best areas for sea glass in Washington.

Here is a photo of what we found in the first hour.

Lin showing one hour's worth of sea glass - North Beach, WA

Although you can't tell by the photo, the beach gems are stacked up deep to the point where they were falling off Lin's hands; I estimate 150 pieces. Yes, most were small but... great fun! Now...

In this issue of the Odyssey Sea Glass Newsletter, you'll find:


sea glass newsletter santa cruz festival

Santa Cruz Sea Glass Festival 2011

Continuing Series

Since there was so much great sea glass at the festival this past fall, we felt it would be nice to feature the primary photos over a period of time.

Here is one of the fine follow up pieces in the finals:

This rare glass tube is an opium bottle most likely from the days of Chinese laborers.

It's not only the Santa Cruz Sea Glass or other festivals that feature fascinating photos of sea glass.

There is always something interesting when checking out the collections of others. Here on Odyssey Sea Glass, there are lots of photos! We invite you to share yours.



Happy hunting,

David and Lin Schneider
