Good for the Soul...New Hampshire Sea Glass
~ photo submitted by K. and D. Johnson
Every morning we have coffee on the farmers porch and I stack glass/pottery....
It's my thing and it is good for the soul.
So I took this shot one morning.
Glass was found on secret beach in northern NH...sorry.
I used a Nikon D50 for this photo. ~ photo submitted by K. and D. Johnson
With only 18 miles of coastline, we will find that secret beach in New Hampshire! Added by David Schneider (Main Asst. Floor Man at OdysseySeaGlass)
New Hampshire's coastline is the shortest of any of the coastal US states. That being said, it has 18 more miles of coastline than states such as West Virginia, Nevada, and Idaho; states where sea glass lovers would long to have even 5 miles of coastline.
Sandwiched on the coast between Maine and Massachusett's, the interior of the state is varied, boasting the highest mountain in New England. The weather station on Mt. Washington records hurricane force winds 1 out of 3 days, laying claim to the "worst weather in the world."
New Hampshire's short coastline offers a nice contrast, though, with delightful scenes and varied shoreline. Off the Atlantic Coast of New Hampshire are nine small islands, four of which belong to the State of NH. Having been populated at various times, some of these islands hold possible treasures for sea glass hunters. Once again, the legends spring up of buried treasure: Blackbeard is said to have hidden some of his bounty on one of the islands.
So who's up to checking out the Isles of Shoals and scouring the 18 miles of mainland coast in search of a secret beach?
Well, for most of us, we'll just have to sit and wait for more photos and reports from the enchanting New Hampshire's coast.
