What started as a joke turned out pretty well.

We always look for sea glass on our annual family beach vacations and sometimes find a few pieces. 

So, this year when we were traveling to a new destination I took a container and joked to our grandchildren that I wanted to fill it with sea glass before the end of the week. 

What a lofty goal!

We had daily beach combing excursions and were pretty successful. 

My daughters and grandchildren have an "eye" for sea glass and found some really good pieces. 

We also found a number of pieces of beach pottery.

Since this site always give me inspiration, I thought I would share the before and after pictures of the container. 

I haven't had time to take individual pictures of the better finds but may do that in the future.
