Odyssey Newsletter - Sunburned but Happy!
June 12, 2012
Hi,

Lin_and_DavidWe hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are happy to have had a beautiful day yesterday.

Lin and I were at the beach and made some rare finds... and came home sunburned for the first time in many months.

Check out this unusual sea glass bead that Lin found:

Orange sea glass bead

How she can see these things among millions of rocks and pebbles, who knows!

Lin's orange sea glass bead

She was looking as she was walking and at first thought it was a piece of plastic trash but went ahead and picked it up anyway. She was pleasantly surprised. To say the least.




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