Blue Monday - Glass Beach

Glass Beach is evidently a popular place for the sea glass collectors living in GiTMO. We've heard the stories and even looked into the sea glass rage and I have to say that it is fascinating.

I enjoy finding these little treasures on the beach, it's like finding really cool sea shells. What I am enjoying most about finding sea glass is the time Michael and I spend together. So far, once a week, we have been going to Glass Beach (or one of the beaches), just the two of us.

A sandy beach is nice, but here, the beaches give us something to do and something to look forward to. Yesterday we found some rare colors; red, cobalt blue, and Periwinkle. Very beautiful and could really see them as a piece of jewelry.

I'm not a big jewelry person so I may have to keep looking for more of these colors and come up with something unique to do with them.

If nothing else, we enjoy the peaceful scenery, time to reconnect, and you can't beat the view.

I hope to be sharing more on the fascinating world sea glass, but first I must educate myself. Until then, take care!

  7. Hello Yira~ I've gotten behind on my visits....I've been tending to my ill kitty over the holiday.

    Sea glass brings back fond memories.
    When I was on my honeymoon, I found (for the first time)sea glass and gathered the small pieces together like precious jewels. When we got to our new home I put the sea glass in a small bottle of water. It sits in a corner in my kitchen where the light shines through and reflects the rainbow of colors. My wonderful treasure always takes me back to that walk on the beach with my hubby. That was 27 years ago, but fills like yesterday when my eye catches a glance of my little bottle of sea glass.
    Sweet wishes,
