Hi Pat,

David said it exactly! Sand City used to be an old dump and that's where I found these pieces.

Cannery Row is also worth a visit next time you come to town. Mostly "babies" but they are perfectly round and lots of colors.

Pat - I don't know where Rose found these beautiful pieces, but if you go to Seaside (Sand City) on the Monterey Bay at low tide, you will find a bunch of sea glass - the only sandy beach that we know of that has lots of glass.

Beautiful collection, Rose!

If you don't mind sharing..exactly where do you go to find these in the Monterey area?

We are from Vancouver, Canada and whenever down in the area always look....with zero luck.

I NEVER find anything on sandy beaches. How do you go about that?

Many thanks for any help you can provide.
