The Hierarchy

The Hierarchy

Rye Beach, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia

We collected this sea glass in 75 minutes on 24 January 2016 at Rye Beach where we are staying until April 2016.

We mainly find the hierarchy of brown, green and white.  And, separately, we have found two pieces of blue sea glass.

We sprayed this "catch of the day" with water for effect.  

There are so many beaches to explore on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. 

There are beaches on the calm waters of the Port Phillip Bay side; and beaches that are on Bass Strait, facing out to Tasmania. 

These are wild and rugged and are the legacy of the State of Victoria breaking away from the Island State of Tasmania - many, many years ago.

We are thinking about what to do with our collection of sea glass when we return to our home in Canberra.

We love the Odyssey website - it has so much useful information - Thank you!

Seaglass Collecting at Rye Beach and Diamond Bay
by: Anonymous

Our sea glass collecting has been at Rye 16 Beach - towards the Mornington end - away from Sorrento. And, just past the big rock that sits there on its own.

We also collect at St Paul's Beach and Diamond Bay (not far from Sorrento)

There's lots of brown and amber pieces and white and various shades of green.

We occasionally find a piece of rare colour.(We've posted a picture on this site of the rare colours)

We're happy to share treasures with you and your little girls.

kind regards

Hi there, What a find, all that sea glass is beautiful.

I just wondered where in Rye you found it? I take my girls down there often and they love collecting treasures.
