Of course, it does not help that I been trolling the beaches of Northern Japan either. :) My new hobby is sea glass hunting. You have to be careful...I always go armed with a plastic cup to ward off the seagulls. :)
So, I hate to admit this...but the beach is less than a mile from my house and I had not ever been! In my defense...it is not a swimming beach. The undertoe is so strong it could suck you in and deliver you to San Francisco! At any rate, you can see my hesitation with 3 small children.
My friend, Tiffany, invited me to go and, quite frankly...started the addiction!
Here are some pics of the beach...note we had a tropical storm coming in, so the sun is hidden behind the clouds.
And this is what the glass looks like as it is sitting on the rocks (look at the blue-ish stone in the center of the picture)...
And what it looks like in my glass jar!
See? Isn't that gorgeous?!! I just love how the light reflects off it. It is going to be a wonderful keepsake of our time here!
Now for the good part! If you would like your own small jar of authentic Japanese sea glass hand collected by yours truly, leave me a comment on this post! I will draw for a winner on Sunday night! (I need a reason to go back out this week...tee hee!)
