Sea Glass - Brier Island
Sea glass has become a favorite past time of mine over the last few years. I collect it whenever I can and go all over the place to find it.
When I visited Brier Island, Nova Scotia, I never expected to find such great sea glass and in such large amounts. If you have the time, you can find great sea glass here, large and small pieces which are great for jewelry.
The best places to look on the Island are in and around the old docks when the tide is out, go under the docks and start your search.
You can also find sea glass over by Peters Island light, drive to the end of the Island and park your car so you are looking at Peters Island light. To find the sea glass you will need to go over the bank to the left of your car and go along the shore.
Sea glass is everywhere on the island and different colors are available.
I find searching for sea glass to be relaxing but fun at the same time, and I hope all you sea glass fanatics will have as much fun as I do searching for sea glass.
If you stay on Brier Island, a good place to stay is at the Brier Island lodge.
They have a restaurant on site and farm animals around the ground and trails to explore.
There is also a great view of the ocean from the lodge grounds. You can even get water view rooms which are great.
The rooms at the lodge are not luxury so don't expect a fancy hotel but they are clean and reasonably priced and very comfortable.
Have fun on your expeditions. ~ sea glass report submitted by Melanie Smith in Moncton N.B.

Also, summer water temperatures are some of the warmest north of Virginia, USA.
It is also the home island of Joshua
