Sea Glass photo - Southworth Beach, Washington State
Southworth is best known as one end of the Vashon Island ferry ride not far from Seattle.
Lying southwest of Seattle itself and on the western side of the Puget Sound, Southworth has a long history back into the early 1800s.
Beaches are beautiful here but for sea glass conditions could be better.
Like other places on the Puget Sound, at the Seattle end of the natural waterway from the Pacific Ocean, these beaches are sheltered from ocean waves and rarely have waves above one foot, thus little wave action to tumble sea glass.
Glass shards are plentiful, especially around spots like ferry terminals that have been populated for many many years. And there are some nice finds as shown in this beautiful photo.
However, jewelry-grade sea glass is almost never found along much of the Puget Sound shores.
