Exotic and Exciting - Lin's Recent Sea Glass Photos plus info...
October 09, 2016

Once again, we bring you our specialized weather forecast - sunny smiles, warm hearts, and a great day no matter where.

Like many beaches, our (Lin and David) local beach can vary from one day to another - some days one or two bland pieces, other days a couple of handfuls of nice beach glass.

Lin hit a few really good days recently and farther down the page you'll see the photos. We hope you enjoy them.

Oh, our local beach is Huanchaco Beach, Peru - south of the Equator on the Pacific Ocean.

In this newsletter, you will find:

  • The Sea Glass Contest Winner for September 2016

Lin's Exotic / Exciting Recent Sea Glass Finds

The photos are from 3 different days. On September 29, we both found a nice few.

On September 30, Lin went to the beach by herself and when she got home we took a photo of what she had found. Wow!

Then on September 6th, we both went again and had a good haul in about 1 hour and 45 minutes.

After all this... we went out to lunch for what they call here Lomito de Pollo or Pollo Saltado. Yum!

For sea food or for sea glass, for surfing or for sunning, Huanchaco Beach is a good place to vacation.

It's spring here now. Come and join Lin and me for a nice break from your normal routine.
