Monterey, CA - Sea Glass Catch of the Day!

Monterey, CA - Sea Glass Catch of the Day!

Found a new stretch of beach this particular day.

Instead of heading south as we usually do, we decided to head north.

Needless to say, I was amazed, mostly stunned, when I found this beauty!

Stretching some 50 miles from its northern point at Steamer Lane, Santa Cruz, Califonia's Monterery Bay provides a degree of protection from the big ocean rollers coming off the Pacific.

There is still a LOT of wave action, and glass shards turn in to frosted gems quickly, especially along the few stretches where the beaches are rocky or pebbly.

Lin and I have walked some of its beaches and look forward to more in the near future. Our grandkids live on the north side of the Bay south of Santa Cruz and love the beach (little surfer girls) and collecting sea glass (see Sea Glass at Seacliff Beach, Santa Cruz), so we will definitely add some photos ourselves.

Perhaps the most and/or best sea glass can be found along the southern shores of Monterey Bay near Monterey itself. An old community stretching back to the times of the Spanish missions, Monterey and nearby communities are an excellent area for visiting and enjoying.

Someone had mentioned that this piece might have originated from "art glass."
