Dee also sent us a nice note saying, "Dear David and Lin, I finally got a picture of the sea glass I have found here on the Outer Banks. 98% on Whalehead Beach, Corolla, and just a few pieces down South (Kitty Hawk and Nags Head).

I am new to collecting... But I walk to beach almost everyday.... Good therapy ; ).

Thank you so much for your Web Site and all the info.

Sea Glass Chronicles BookSea Glass Chronicles
"I love this book. It has a very unique perspective - the history of objects from another time - which have washed up on our shores.

"It is remarkable that a history could be written about a shard of glass. But the author manages to trace back through infinitesimal clues the origin and use of what to most is just colorful detritus. The text is very brief and poetic but also informative.

"The photographs by Pat Hanbery beautifully enhance the found objects. They are insightful and clever, and the quality and sharpness is always first rate. I have seen other photographs by Pat Hanbery but this is a wonderful and whimsical use of her talents."  ~ review by Heidi Pratt
