*Secret* Beaches and those who claim them. . .

by Anna
(San Francisco, CA)

From experience, I can tell you that the majority of people who are against telling others the whereabouts of their *secret beaches* are those making a profit off their sea glass and don't like competition.

I have seen hostility on the beaches, at shows and online and it saddens me that people can be so selfish.

I have seen women from across the ocean chastise those thousands of miles away (online) for divulging ANY sea glass location!

I spend a fair amount of time traveling world-wide in search of treasures to bring my customers and I am always amazed at the lack of hospitality shown me by those supposed business people who claim to "love and respect" the ocean and it's bounty.

Sadly, they give us all a bad reputation.

I just posted on another page where some guy said "I wont tell you where I go though".

WTH? If I go there one DAY it ruins his seaglass hunting for LIFE?

I dont get it. If its a good beach then there is new glass every day.

And its not like we are all MOVING to his local beach.

IF we go it will probably only be for a day!

I also have seen people be very rude on the beach when I am out collecting.

But I just tell them I am only meant to have what I find.

I am not a threat.

I love looking for it and will not stop or let anyone bother me. It is a joy for me.
