How are things going there? As seaglassers, weather conditions are always on our minds. Will it be hot or cold today? Windy? Wet? When is low tide?

Right now you could be experiencing some of the extrerme ranges of weather conditions that are affecting millions of people.

Those of you near the East Coast of the USA are feeling lower termperatures than you have ever felt there in your lifetime all the way down to Florida.

On the other extreme, if you live in our near Sydney, Australia, you are suffering through some of the hottest weather ever felt there.

What is it like where you are today? I have just posted to our Odyssey Sea Glass Facebook Page this question. Please share your local weather conditions with others - we are always interested.

Lin and I are enjoying the somewhat cooler-than-normal-but-pleasant beach weather here in Huanchaco. It's about 70F on the beach today.

In our last newsletter, we posted about the coming visit of the pope to our small town. The news reports that there could be up to 1 million people invading our quiet village. Yipes! Transportation will be completely closed down for a couple of days so we are stocking up on the essentials will hunker down until things are over. I'll see if I can get photos of the trash afterwards. Hmmm, then again, maybe not, it will be a mess!

On another note, due to time constraints we won't be running our photo contest in 2018. However...

YOU can still upload your photos - in fact we encourage you to send in more photos than ever - go to our page
Photo Forums and choose the appropriate category.

Here's what we have in this newsletter.
