Some favorites.

Omaha Beach at Vierville-sur-Mer, and San Malo Beach, San Malo, both in France.


The glass that we found was mostly craft grade. Green was the predominant color. Loved the shades of green, from aqua to citron, to all sorts of greens.

At Omaha Beach, We spotted very little glass, but it was more tumbled and frosted. Most pieces were small. Found only up near the rocks at shoreline, where there was a strip of pebbly beach.

At San Malo, we went at low tide walking toward the fort perched on the rocks. Lots of glass here, but most of it wasn’t tumbled enough to keep. We only had a half hour to search- so maybe if one had longer, there would be better areas. The pottery/tile pieces were from San Malo.

We were there in August, and both beaches had many tourists.

Any insights into what appear to be clay marbles? They were actually from a beach near Sarzeau, France. They don’t have holes- those are dark spots. They feel like clay. Just curious!
