Sea Glass Jackpot

by Ryan and Hilari

You weren't kidding about glass beach!

We were up at 4:30am and on the 7:10am ferry to ***** (please read followup comments about these blanks) so that we could make it to ***** at low tide.

The walk west was a true test of control, as we wanted so badly to stop at every little pocket of glass and start collecting.

We did gather at random along the way though (haha)!

Even though our heads were permanently fixed at a downward angle, the two people we met were able to hold our attention long enough to tell us that a grey whale was feeding just past the kelp bed off glass beach.

Unfortunately it had moved on before we were able to catch a glimpse.

Upon arriving at ***** Point, we quickly ran short on adjectives!

The hike from ***** was just a prelude to what can only be explained as "glasshound heaven".

I swear this place should be called "Jackpot Point" hahaha.

We found our very first piece of red followed by four more, including a small piece that was half red and half orange!

We have agreed that, without a doubt, our lips will not speak of "Jackpot Point" to anyone!

I can't thank you enough for letting us in on it!

Pictures of the day's haul will surface within a day or so.

Again, thank you so much! You don't know how much this day meant to us!!!

I was thinking the same thing about the use of *** in the article. I am happy to read that we can read about this place in an article you wrote David, but I have to say, I subscribed to the newsletter recently and I never received the email you are speaking about with a password to the article. I would be very interested to read it.


Hi Kate,

I don't know why the place names in this article are missing ! What's the point if you don't want to mention them ? If you want to keep it secret ,no sense writing to let the others to read it ! Wasted my time !


Ooops, I'm sorry! It was me, David, that edited out the words.

I didn't explain this very well I guess.

The beach that is commented on is the one that I wrote a special article on to get people to sign up for our free email magazine.

Ryan and Hilari read the article and decided to see for themselves, which resulted in the above comments that I edited.

When you sign up for our newsletter. You receive the page link and password and can read all about it. You can cancel the newsletter after reading it if you want.

I apologize for any inconveniences and, again, it wasn't Ryan or Hilari's fault.
