Summer's End

In one way or another I think we all feel a sense of sadness when Summer comes to an end. The cool breeze of Autumn comes in and we start to head indoors leaving the beaches empty.

This is a great time to collect sea glass. Tourist have gone home, kids are back in school and you might just have the beach to yourself.

Collecting sea glass as a professional, I field an enormous amount of questions about the process of collecting sea glass.

When they see my collection one of the most asked questions is:

"I walk the beaches all the time and never find sea glass, how do you find so many pieces?"

Sand filled gorgeous beaches are the most difficult beaches to find sea glass. You may find a piece here and there but never an exorbitant amount. Glass needs stones and pebbles to to tumble it.

Look in coves and corners by jetties if it is a sand filled beach. But the best beaches for collecting are not always the most beautiful.

Sea glass or not any day at the beach is a good day for me!
