Plum Island (near mouth of Merrimack River) near Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Plum Island sea glass hunting seems to be seasonal. 

I find quite a bit in the off season, but not so much in the summer.  Perhaps because there is more competition! 

A lot of it is too "new" and not frosted enough, but I've found some nice weathered pieces.  Mostly browns, clears, greens, seafoam. 

Dogs are allowed off season.

I have to say never found any sea glass on Plum Island.

Big disappointment but Plum Island has great driftwood.
