Learned Something New
We went to the beach today. We usually don't go this early in the season, but time has afforded us to go, so we do. Everybody knows the colder it is, the better shell seeking is. Right now the beach is covered with shells.........none that would sell in a store called The Shell Shop, but they're fun to look for anyway! I cut the top off of a liquid laundry soap bottle and that's what I carry to put shells in. It works better than a plastic bag, believe me.
Two older women passed me today and they had little cloth bags they were putting their found treasure in. They passed back by us again and I asked them what they were looking for. I told them I like to find just the regular shells with holes in them.......so you can hang them from things. They said they looked for GLASS!
(I've been avoiding the glass!!!)
They said it gets tumbled and polished just like a rock, then it's not sharp and jagged on the sides anymore. They showed me some of theirs. It IS pretty. But I only have ONE piece. It is hard to find. The sharp pieces of glass are everywhere....but not the beautiful tumbled safe glass.......collector's glass.....so I learned something new today. I officially am collecting sea glass now. My one piece is about the size of a quarter.
I have a feeling this collection is going to be a challenge. There are rabbits EVERYWHERE........so they're easy.
