My fiancé and I love searching for sea glass whenever we go down the shore.
On 6/30/13, he actually proposed to me on this exact beach while searching for sea glass!! (Needless to say, I found THE biggest piece that day!) :D
We usually go searching for it in the off season which is when we get lucky, especially in November-February.
We always seem to find frosted clear and browns; usually very smooth pieces.
However, this last time we found many shades of greens and blues! I felt like I hit the sea glass jackpot!!
The two pictures are from 12/30/13. :)Rate the beach:
--- Excellent - 10+ pieces of jewelry grade sea glass found per hour.Add any other suggestions or cautions that will help others.
I highly recommend people searching for sea glass in late fall/winter time.
It does get very windy so dress warm!
But the beautiful treasures you find are worth it!
Off season: the beaches are free.
Peak months: You have to purchase a beach badge if you plan on spending the day. After 5pm the lifeguards go off duty and it is free to search around.
Good luck and happy searching!!~ submitted by Jenn Casper, North Jersey
