MULLINS BAY, BARBADOS Sea Glass Report
by Carolyn Dorfman
|Beach at Bottom Bay, Barbados, Caribbean |
I went in january to Barbados, I was staying in the south side (no glass by Divi Resort Southwinds
However, i took a $2.00 bus ride up to the Cobblers Cove Resort
to eat at for lunch (also was recommended to look for sea glass in front of the hotel in the Caribbean waters).
I actually got off prior to the hotel and went to relax at the beach at Mullins Bay (you pay for a chair here). Well I never had the chance to sit, as I was walking back and forth collecting glass on the beach and where the waves broke.
I forgot my snorkel and mask which I am sure I would have found more, mostly white, green, brown, pale light blue, also window panes with various patterns,
However, they didn't tumble smooth for some reason and if they did, it lost the decorative pattern, so after Mullins I walked up about 10 minute walk to Cobblers Cove Hotel
There is a public path that can take you right out to the beach and in front of the hotel, here is where I found old rum bottle glass, etc.
Jewelry quality grade on some pieces, took home 5 lbs of glass, I liked finding the old pre 1900's pieces of rum bottles, they will look like rocks, hold them to light and see color.
Local I met, said on a rare occasion you can find a red.
Walk the length of the beach, it's a hit and miss too, as people collect there and the locals sell it.
