We went on our regular beach work yesterday at low tide and found the most sea glass we have ever found which really is a bad thing as it is a swimming beach.

Many pieces were shape and jaggered and a cut risk.

The beach is a beautiful beach and the history is fantastic as our sand once was shipped to Waikiki Hawaii for there beach sand.

We do have alot of international ships parked out to see so suspect bottles are thrown overboard as well as from the breakwall as fisherman visit this area from up to 150kms away from Sydney to fish the lakes inlet.
