Just for Sea Glass Fans - Updates - Photos

How are you doing today? Our hearts go out to those of you living in zones being slammed by hurricanes or other disasters.

Lin and I live on the coast of Peru in the Southern Pacific Ocean. The Spanish named this ocean "pacific" because of the almost total lack of storms.

Thus not only has no hurricane ever affected this coastline; there have been no ocean storms at all, yes, AT ALL, in the many years we have spent on the coasts of Peru and Ecuador.

This can be very boring. Which is OK for us.

On the other hand, as many of you know, the Pacific Ocean is surrounded by a "ring of fire" which means volcanoes in certain stretches and, more to the point, severe earthquakes.

Peru has been hit by many earthquakes. When that happens, there is no warning and no escape. For now, all is OK here.

Well, on to better news.

Lin and I had a nice day at the beach on September 4th. Here are a few photos.

Above is what we found on September the 4th here in Huanchaco Beach, Peru. Exciting!

NOTE: Here's a caution though that applies to beaches everywhere.

Most people seeing the nice sea glass that was found on a certain day would expect to find the same on their visit to that same beach.

That is going to lead to disappointment in many cases. On any given beach, there are big changes from one day to the next.

That's just as true here in Huanchaco Beach as anywhere else.

Take a look at what we found on our next trip to the same stretch of beach just 3 days later:

September 7th, Huanchaco Beach, one hour plus, one (1) piece of sea glass.

That's it. One piece of sea glass. Yep. only one lonely piece. Same beach, similar low tide, similar wave conditions.

So what does this mean for you?

What someone else finds one day does not mean you will find as much or as little the next day.

The secret to success is that there is no secret to success except:

Keep on truckin' or, better said, keep on seaglassin' and keep your eyes open, you can't do any more than that :)
