Giddy as a Child
This is the first time I went to Glass Beach (Black Beach) in Port Townsend, Washington.
I was by myself and left for the 3 hr. round trip on foot along the shoreline.
You can only reach this beach in extremely minus tides. So timing and planning were key.
I didn’t come prepared as I should of and my pockets and pants pockets were crammed full.
On the way back to the car I was jogging and late as I had to meet my friend.
With the heavy load my pants were falling off and I was like a little kid filled with extreme joy jogging and laughing and excited about my treasures.
There is something very therapeutic listening to the sounds of the ocean, the breeze, the sea life, different colored stones and glass, my heaven and my happy place. Gives me such joy.
All total it was a five hour trip and you have to be careful because of tide changes. I’ve been back a couple times. I was very thrilled with my finds.
I got back to the house and found this aqua colored bowl, washed my glass and took the picture.
