Sea Glass contest winner February 2012
"Seaglass Gems"
Photo Contest March 2012

James's photo will run on many pages of OdysseySeaGlass through this month and will have a chance at Sea Glass Photo of the Year next January.

Wow, it's the second week of April! But there's still time to get your photos in for the contest this month - don't wait; he who hesitates is lost in the ozone.

Your April Sea Glass Photo Contest starts here...

The Beach?

Lin and I finally have had several opportunities to get the to beach and hunt for treasures - with really good success.

You may have seen the large wine-red nugget I (David) found. But then today, Lin fought back by finding nine pieces of red plus a red bead. Four of the reds were really nice size and quality.

I don't have photos yet, but we'll get them up as soon as possible.

One of the fun parts of beach glassing is sharing with others while hunting.

Lin and I have met some great beachcombers at the beach lately here at North Beach, Washington and enjoyed sharing experiences with all.

How about you? Send in your photos, questions, and experiences or just read up on our Sea Glass Community Forums pages.

We hope you enjoy perusing the new pages below and also some of the older tidbits.

Happy hunting,

David and Lin Schneider

NOTE - BUG REPORT: At the beginning of this April, our RSS/Blog feed got scrambled, so for the time being, you'll be seeing old blogs posted as being new or you'll see dates mixed up.

For this reason, we won't be posting links to the latest blogs and pages - we'll have to wait until the dust settles.

We hope to have that straightened out soon. Thanks for your patience, especially those of you submitting photos to the contest.

"Another truly gorgeous book from Josie for those of us in love with the beach and all its gifts. It makes me long for the summer and warm sand under my feet, and the possibility of finding treasures. I'm inspired all over again with her poetry of words and valentine of jewels!" ~ S. ONEILL

Pure Sea Glass Identification Deck - Richard LaMotte/Celia Pearson
"From a collector of sea glass these cards were great. Just like a quick reference guide if you find a specific color with it's history. They are laminated so if they get wet it won't hurt them! Great find!" ~ J. Ericson

Sea Glass Chronicles BookSea Glass Chronicles
"I love this book. It has a very unique perspective - the history of objects from another time - which have washed up on our shores.

It is remarkable that a history could be written about a shard of glass. But the author manages to trace back through infinitesimal clues the origin and use of what to most is just colorful detritus.

The text is very brief and poetic but also informative.

The photographs by Pat Hanbery beautifully enhance the found objects. They are insightful and clever, and the quality and sharpness is always first rate. I have seen other photographs by Pat Hanbery but this is a wonderful and whimsical use of her talents.
