Basse-Terre, Guadaloupe

On a cruise today, docked at Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, and to the right, immediately at the end of the pier was a trashy looking beach with a bonanza of sea glass. I collected at least 10 pounds! UGH - now, how to get it home!!

I collected all of this in just an hour and a half!! I could have stayed for hours more collecting, as it was everywhere!! Lots of cobalt blue, some reds, many amber, lots of green and clear.

My favorite is the round ball with a base. Not sure what is was originally.

Wikipedia says, "Basse-Terre is located in the south-western corner of the Basse-Terre portion of the island of Guadeloupe which is itself located some 100 km north of Dominica and some 450 km south-east of Puerto Rico. The commune is at the foot of the Soufrière volcano and is connected to the rest of the island by three main roads:"
