your Odyssey Sea Glass News, Issue #021 -- ~Let's Fly Away~
October 12, 2009
Hello All,

Best Arts and Crafts SuppliesLin_and_David
Hey, it's been over two weeks since our last newsy letter!

Things have been a LITTLE hectic around here. Our daughter, Kelsey, is getting married in a couple of months. Well, that wouldn't be too hectic except she lives in Bolivia in the Latino version of the Land Down Under. So, it's going to be a trip. We figured why not take advantage of the trip and move a little closer her?

So, in combination with a few other favorable circumstances, 
ito make a long story short, we are moving to Northern Peru November 23rd.  More on that below...and we are busy, busy, so this will be shorter than usual.

We will say hello, though, to our great sea glass fans in the MANY countries visiting our site since the last newsletter. Tonight (today, tomorrow, whatever) we extend a warm welcome you in
China (Nih hu) or in your local language, Hong Kong (we'll just say, Hello!), and Spain (Buenos dias, buenas noches, o buenas tardes, como sea; I didn't have to look that one up!)

Please bear with us if we don't get the greetings rigtht...we just pass the blame on to our advisers..


Here is a little reminder to check out the upload features on "Catch of the Day,", where you can contribute your photos on what you find at the beach today (tonight, tomorrow, whatever). It works so smooooooth.

If you have more than one photo you would like to share, feel free to send us an email by clicking on the pic of us above.

For this week, we would invite any of you to share a short story of your beach impressions (funny, sad, or exciting) and get a link to the website or blog of your choice.


For those of you who have just recently signed up, this newsletter is an update on the new features and changes in the last couple of weeks.

If you are a new subscriber, you will enjoy the story and photos at the Glass Beach Special.

But take a look at the updates below and see if you missed something important.

Oct 8, 2009, Wow!

There is so much going on right now! We have some good interviews lined up with sea glass people on the East Coast USA, Scotland, and various other areas as well as beaches to post, etc.

But things are Topsy Turvy here at Odyssey. Lin and I will be headed for Bolivia, SA, for our daughter Kelsey's wedding (exact date not fixed yet). Our date of departure is November 23rd.

To kill two birds with one stone (or piece of sea glass if you're a cruel person), we will be moving most of our operations to the coast of Northern Peru for awhile. All our features on this site will continue plus we are excited about exploring beaches on a virtually unreported coastline thousands of miles long. Suffice it to say that folks have been dumping their trash (ie, glass) there since before the West Coast of the USA was settled.

Oh boy.

Right now we have sea glass and rocks (yes, we collect those too) piled and scattered all over in among the stuff we are taking or selling as well as boxes, tape, and the rest of the packing materials...

Anyway, if you've been waiting for another newsletter, just hang's crazy here right now.

Happy hunting (grounds?)
