French Bay and Glen Bay (Akaroa) Head of Bay (Duvauchelle)

Near Akaroa and Duvauchelle

South Island, New Zealand

I went out for a few hours and collected almost 1kg of glass. It was everywhere, a very exciting find!

Pieces were frosted and oddly shaped, smooth but not round ornery uniform shapes.

Some were also more aged and not so frosted, newer pieces i guess.

A huge array of colours as well. One blue piece, one purple one yellow and the rest a nice mix of brown and green.

Most of the glass was found in Akaroa and then Duvauchelle, also I stopped at various small bays in between and found glass at every beach.

Awesome picking

That is a fantastic find, I am exploring beaches at the other end of New Zealand and work hard to find good pickings.
