Blue day for sea glass

Blue day for sea glass
Lots of times, there are no blues at all
A nice beach tile and a whopping teal beach glass
Lin is happy :)

We got home a few minutes ago from the beach here in Peru.


Although it was overcast, it was around 70 degrees F on the beach.

Summer is starting here this month.

Like lots of beaches around the world, at times we can walk this beach and not find one piece of glass.

So if you are able to visit a beach where photos have shown great sea glass and you hit it on the wrong day... don't give up, give it another chance. :)

2015 03 18 Huanchaco Beach Peru Sea Glass


Today, Lin and I walked on the beach where we live here in Huanchaco, Peru.

The day dawned sunny and very warm. The weather was beautiful. The beach wasn't as trashy as usual.

Lin found a tiny red-orange.

We also found the large blue shown in the photographs. It was unfortunately chipped and strangely cracked.

We found over 40 pieces of glass among other interesting objects in about 2 hours.

We came across a current convergence where a bunch of flotsam and jetsam was piled. Among the trash was several tiny starfish. So cute!

Huanchaco Beach Sea Glass - Peru Aug. 21st, 2014

August 21, 2014 - Huanchaco, Peru

Like many beaches, the change in the level of the sand and exposure of the rocks underlying the sand layers can be drastic here in Huanchaco, Peru.

There are days when the beach is mostly rocks and pebbles. On those days, there is generally a pretty good day's haul of sea glass.

On other days, the beach is mostly sand and almost no sea glass at all to be found.

On the day we found the sea glass shown above, the conditions were somewhere in between with some small pockets of pebbles in amongst the sand.

Along with several nice pieces of sea glass, we found some other interesting beach finds.

Now, the hard part. Incorporating these finds into something artistic!

We find a good selection of sea glass - and Lin finds the beautiful red shown at the top of this page! She found it about halfway to Huanchaquito in an area that usually is very sandy with an occasional piece of beach glass in the more common colors.

Wow! Well-tumbled sea glass here -  very few "uncooked" pieces ever found.

On this day, Lin and I didn't find a whole bunch of sea glass.

On the other hand, there are a few really nice pieces.

Whites (clear) and green sea glass pieces don't usually get us real excited.

But when they are so perfectly shaped, each piece appeals to our sense of design and symmetry. Of course, a rare color is even better :-)

As usual, this day we also picked up other beachcombing finds like pieces of tile and ceramic, driftwood, and a sea urchin.

More than anything, it is so refreshing to get outdoors, breathe the salt air, stretch out the arms and legs, feel your feet on the sand, and get a little tangy wet.

Walking on the rounded pebbles is like getting a pressure point massage. Therapists recommend walking on the beach barefoot.

However... not in weather below 40 degrees F. Not recommended for bare feet. Not even for foolhardy people like seaglassers. Nope.

Here's the first photo-worth piece, a green of unusual shape
This green turned out looking like something you might want to put in your mouth and suck on... but we didn't.
This blue was small but a very pleasing bright  colors. All the blues we found were pretty small.

The last time we went hunting beach glass here at Huanchaco Beach, Peru, was a couple of days ago.

At that time, the sand had piled up and covered up lots of the mixed rocks pebble layers where sea glass is usually found, so there wasn't a lot.

Today, the tide was really low and there was a nice strip of pebbles showing.

The weather was misty the whole time we were on the beach, but it was fairly warm, like around 70 degrees F.

We ended up with a really nice catch.

Here are some of the photos.

RED! This perfect, raspberry and white sea glass gem certainly was the catch of the day. I, David, saw it a split second ahead of Lin, so get to claim it as MINE. Oh Yeah!

Here's another view of the multi red from the side as I found it in the pebbles. We have never seen a piece of sea glass with this red and white layering.
Lin found this powder blue beautifully-shaped sea glass today. This color of blue is rather rare.
The last of our featured finds today was this green gem. Again, this color of green is not usually found.

To continue with the sea glass Lin and I found on November 7th, 2013, here in Huanchaco, I have uploaded the above photos.

If you haven't been following us on facebook you likely didn't see the photo of a big dump truck dumping garbage directly into the sea a few miles south of here.

Scroll down, and I believe you'll see the photo on this page.

One of the major Peruvian newspapers ran a report on the garbage disposal problem of the city of Trujillo, Peru.

Trujillo is only about 20 minutes from where we live in Huanchaco.

Anyway, this problem of dumping off the bluffs in the neighborhood of "Buenos Aires" (not the city in Argentina) was being excused somewhat as a way to slow down the erosion of the cliffs which had been slowly destroying property.

Be that as it may, we get quite a bit of trash coming in on the tides to our beach. Yuck.

We'll try to get down to that dump site to see first-hand what is going on

Of course, we won't hesitate to put our HazMat suits on and clean up any well-rounded pieces of glass trash we come across LOL.

Here's another perfectly-shape blue. It amazes us at the amount of perfectly rounded and shaped pieces here!

The beach here changes from one day to the next.


Aside from tides, the changes that affect hunting for sea glass is whether it is going to be covered up with lots of sand or if the pebbles and sea glass will be exposed.

Some days there is a great "spread" of pebbles just the right size for a mix of sea glass.

Other days, there are almost no pebbles showing (or sea glass, although we always find some).

We've been here about 4 months and are trying to figure it out, see if there's a pattern to the changes - whether it's the size of the surf (varies from 3 feet to 8 feet), mild/extreme tide changes, or what.

Like many places, sea glass hunting is best here at low tide.

Since there is sand over a rock bottom, the pebbles and sea glass tend to be more at lower tide lines.

The weather has been changing to spring here in Huanchaco, Peru.

What this means is less fog and breeze, more sun and warmer air.

Since we aren't that far from the equator, the sun is pretty much overhead most of the year.

The weather is affected mainly by the cold or colder ocean current that sweeps up from Antartica.

Because of these factors, the temperature doesn't vary a lot by day or night!

For these few weeks, day temperature is running at about 70 degrees F, night time at 66 degrees F.

This is inside and outside - there is no central heating in most houses in Peru and it's not really needed,Inside Peru Huanchaco Beach especially in the lowlands of the coast, and definitely not needed in the jungle areas..

Anyway, pretty pleasant temperatures for walking the beach!

August 31, 2013 - As many of you know, Lin and I (David) are living in Huanchaco, Peru.

Huanchaco is a small town outside of the city of Trujillo and is right on the beach.

It is known as being close to the huge archaeological site of Chan Chan as well as being a "surf city" type place with lots of surfing and tourism.

We have been very pleasantly surprised at the abundance and quality of the sea glass here (as you know if you have been following us on facebook).

Our apartment is only 2 blocks from the beach and the sea glass is 5 minutes from our door! Nice!

Here are a few photos of what we found today.
