Lake Erie, near Point Gratiot, Dunkirk, NY, USA  

April, 2017

I've just started collecting, so it's not that impressive. But I thought I'd share it anyway.

This was only my third collecting excursion, and the lake was perfect- really calm, barely any waves. I don't think I've ever seen it as calm as it was today. It looked almost like glass (pun fully intended!).

The beach that I collected this on is a secluded area in a sort of bay a few miles away from my house, with a large factory on one side and Point Gratiot on the other. It's very rocky, and I think that a lot of glass ends up there because of the currents.

I couldn't stay there for very long, but I'm sure I would have found much more glass had I stayed longer- most of this was found within a ten-foot radius.

Most of these are smaller than my fingernail. I'm especially proud of the small cyan piece viewed from the side, and the light green piece in the foreground.

Very excited to continue collecting!
