your Odyssey Sea Glass News, Issue #023 -- Storms Uncover Treasures
November 09, 2009
Treasures Uncovered? Huh? Well, it does get your attention. And there is truth in that statement if you are one of those fanatic sea glass treasure hunters. Of course, we're not. We're calm and collected sea glass treasure hunters. Of course.
In the last couple of days, we have gotten reports of 20+ foot waves on the Washington Coast,which is pretty much unusual. Although the open ocean Pacific Coast beaches out there have few reports of good sea glass, the waves make their way into the Strait of San Juan de Fuca and create decent sized waves in here on both sides of the strait (including Port Angeles to Port Townsend as well as the Victoria, Canada, side) and the facing beaches of the San Juan Islands themselves.
Many of you are experiencing the first good storms of winter and braving icy temperatures to see what the unusual wave action has uncovered. Also, keeping an eye open for any floating objects of interest, such as glass floats, etc...just on the off chance..
Soon we should be getting some reports on what the storm-scoured beaches are producing. Of course, the storm season cycle also replenishes many beaches with "new" old glass from erosion of bluffs on the top of which used to exist homesteads or dumps, not to mention wash-outs of gullies where old trash from years gone by can finally reach the beach. This consists of shards, of course, but is the beach glass of the futures years.
But now...our greetings to you, visitors who are visiting our site here from your home countries of....Phillipines, although you probably speak English, we'll take advantage of some Tagalog - "Magandang hapon po"; Pangasinan - "Masantós a kabuasán"; and, of course, Spanish, "Buenas tardes." For you visiting from Ireland and Trinidad and Tobago, "Welcome!"
Now, if I got those wrong, I hope you'll let me know so I can correct our list here.
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.
