David and Lin Sea GlassIt's hard to believe that we are in the last part of the summer. 

Summer doesn't last long enough for some of us! 

On the other hand, the more fanatical of us long for the winter storms, strong currents, and bigger waves that stir up the sand and pebbles along our favorite sea glass beaches.

Lin and I (David) are now living in Huanchaco, Peru, as many of you know already from our facebook pages - Odyssey Sea Glass facebook

The beach at Huanchaco spreads both ways many miles and we have been trying to walk some of it almost every day.

We have been posting photos of the sweet sea glass found here in Huanchaco on facebook, so be sure to check
our facebook posts regularly.

"Fabulous find!"

"Spanish Discoveries"

Since Lin and I were travelling for all of July, we didn't get a chance to post a lot of the contest photos until August.

As a result, August was swamped with great photos.

Be sure to see them all; some of them are really good with beautiful sea glass.

Seaham, England - Beach Glass Destination

John Candlish (April 1816 – March 1874) was best known as a British glass bottle manufacturer and Liberal Party politician.

After several career changes, Candish acquired a bottle manufacturing plant in Seaham in the North East of England.

The area was right for glass making since there were coal mines to provide fuel and sand for the glass making.

John Candish eventually had 5 plants in Seaham, and his bottles were distributed around the world.

Some of the glass at Seaham came from his bottle plants.

However, the colorful glass that Seaham is best known likely (in our opinion) came from glass makers specializing in glassware for decor and dinnerware.

To see more historical information about Seaham, including comments from descendants of the Candish family, see our page Seaham Beach, England Sea-Glass.

If you are thinking about taking a trip to Seaham, find more information at our page Collected Off Seaham Beach - North East of England.
