Narragansett, Rhode Island, USA: 

Narragansett, RI: beach south of the clam shack, but also great pickings on the long, 3/4 mile beach stretch north of the shack.

The date was October 14, 2016, bright sunshine, windy, low tide around 1 PM.

Photo shows with and without light. (Followed the recommendation of another sea glass picker from this website!)

South beach is rocky and digging yields more (this is where Hubs found the black gem.)

North beach had a ton of Craft A grade + but most of it's concentrated where the mouth of a river and the ocean converge. Great fetch and wave action.

I was proud of Hubs! He always finds the black sea glass. This gem piece is about 3/4 size of a dime.

The photo was taken with my iPhone 6+

Gansett is 10x better than maine
by: Anonymous

Hi, I gotta say.. I think maine is a joke. I also have jars of seaglass from narragansett. Sea glass aside, the beaches and town cant be compared to anywhere in maine. Totally different vibe and one that I personally much prefer. Again tho prob just partial to my home state. Sea glass beaches in gansett- town beach, scarborough, roger wheeler, bonnet point, narrow river mouth, pebble beach, east passage...

sea plastic
by: Anonymous

My mom's from Maine and I have tons of jars of sea glass. Harder to find now of course since the move toward plastics of course. My sons are sea glass experts with their special "sweet spots" at our favorite beaches.

I live in Connecticut (CT)...don't bother with CT beaches except for one tiny one that doesn't even count as a beach (Long Island Sound is the reason...). Narragansett is a joke.

We go midwinter...what they consider low tide (Maine's low tide puts southern New England tides to shame). No one on beach. No one brave enough to explore in winter cold. Ha...they have shards of "sea plastic" everywhere. All colors, take your pick...sea glass? Nah.

It's very sad to see how their sand is filled with plastic chunks. Not a fan at all...okay if you really want to see the ocean and have a need to connect with the sea and ok if you want to throw in a midwinter (AKA not busy)visit for Rhode Island's version of clam cakes (dough balls, no clams from what I can see).

Sorry, partial to my mom's home state but this is the truth.
