Big Red - Sea Glass
~ by David - Red Red Sea Glass
Well, what can I say? After so many years whining about Lin always finding better sea glass than me (just in a kidding tone of course), I finally am able to just smile and gloat.
We went to North Beach in Port Townsend, WA, last week on a very chilly day, although there was some sun.
We left the car and headed down the now-barricaded boat ramp (why in the world did they shut this nice little ramp).
I looked down and saw a lump that looked at first glance like one of the rocks, due to its size and dark color. However, my eye was caught by something that said it was glass.
I picked it up and took a look through the heavily frosted, dark surface and though, "Hmmm, that looks kinda red." Then I thought it must be a shade of brown.
It definitely was not a bright or cherry red...but was that actually a dark wine-red I was seeing?
I showed it to Lin and she was quiet. Then she said, maybe it's red.
I put it in my bag and tried not to get overly-excited. After all, at my age they say you shouldn't put a sudden strain on your heart.
I figured with good light at home we would be able to tell what color it really was.
Well, the next day the sun came out, so I wet the lump and the photos above show what we saw... a beautiful deep red!
What made it even better is the size. It measures 1-1/8 inch long by 5/8 inches by 5/8 inches.
Yes, it is a good glob of golly-I-found-it gorgeous red. :-)
My conclusion? Keep whining long enough and you'll find your gorgeous glob of ridiculously-red sea glass, too.
