Pleasing and Entertaining Sea Glass Videos - Finding sea glass -
Checking out new beaches, beautiful scenery, friends...what fun!
2013, we moved to Huanchaco Beach, Peru, an interesting seaside town
near Trujillo, one of the biggest cities in the country of Peru in
We didn't know what to expect as far as sea glass went but from the surrounding environment, we had some good expectations (see Land Features, Beach Layout, and Water).
Although not loaded with sea glass, the beach produces excellent colors and always a high percentage of jewelry-quality pieces.
First you'll see below some videos of searching for sea glass here on Huanchaco Beach.
Farther down are videos we made when living in the State of Washington.
This video was actually a combination of two different days. You'll see Lin finds 2 pieces of red - this was not on the same day. Amazing that she found them within two weeks of each other, as red is very hard to find here as in most places. There is also a amber-greenish yellow that looked super yellow in the water and is an excellent find.
We filmed this brief video on February 18th, 2015, and it is representative of what you'll find in two or three hours at the beach here.
you can see, Huanchaco Beach provides really good sea glass hunting.
Although not in the class of the best beaches in the world
Beach for rarity or Fort
Bragg, CA for quantity), this
is definitely an area that sea glass fanatics would LOVE to explore.
Here on Odyssey Sea Glass, we have loads more photos and info on Huanchaco and othe beaches in Peru for your browsing pleasure.
Finding Sea Glass - Intro Sea Glass Videos
In 2013, we filmed our first video of collecting sea glass near North Beach, Washington.
Here is a brief run of a couple of minutes scrabbling through some beach pebbles. David finds an interesting green and Lin finds an orange/red.
Since this was a
trial run, I included just a few minutes. Later on this same day, I
took a lot of footage.
Lin and I
will try to find the time to go through it and add some much more

Finding Sea Glass - Part 2 Sea Glass Videos
This is the second in a series of video briefs shot in Washington.
David and Lin hike the beaches on a beautiful day.
In this very short video, David finds a marble and an interesting object within a few feet of each other. Exciting? Yep!
Part of the fun of going to the beach, hunting for sea glass and other beach treasures, and just the general enjoyment of the outdoors is bringing something back to show your friends.
Videos are even better than photographs to capture certain things about a beach glass trip or vacation.
For example, the wind or waves and anything that is best captured through motion.
Of course, it does involve a little more work than still shots, like getting it to look right, editing, sound, et cetera.
But a simple basic video is always fun to look at.
Now, the added attraction is to be able to upload it to one of the many sites on the net, making it a simple thing to share a sea glass video with others just about anywhere in the world.
Well, having said that, Lin and I just haven’t had the time or equipment in the past to take full advantage of this great medium.
It is something that we have been planning on expanding right from the start of this site but have not had the right circumstances for making good video projects yet.
On the other hand, if there are any of you fans out there with suggestions or who want to put up some videos, please let us know through our contact page in the left column here.
It would be easy for us to put a YouTube video, etc, on this page, for example.
All I can say as far as our own videos go, is WE WANT TO make them. Well we want to travel around the world, too…
