Sea glass collecting, sharing the joy

Why do I love sea glass collecting? There’s nothing more restful to me than spending the day at the beach, enjoying the majesty of the ocean’s waves, soaking in the scent of the beach, and being calmed by the sounds of the ebb and flow of the waves.

After months of sheltering at home during the pandemic, I’m ready for an adventure. The beach calls to me and I can’t wait to answer the call. It has been stormy weather the past few days. This has raised our hopes high for finding sea glass. The morning sun greets us aiding us in our search. The sunlight reflects off the hidden sea glass. Our entire family shares in the joy of discovering sea glass this trip.

Four beaches later, we are at our last beach. We enjoy chatting with the few beachcombers we have met on these windy days. But at our last beach, the comradery of sea glass lovers blesses us. A family with young children seearches the beach nearby us. Their goal for the days was to find green sea glass. They joyfully share a beautiful piece of turquoise sea glass with me.

Needless to say, as I experience the sense of belonging to the sea glass community, my family is also sharing in the joy of this journey. Join me on this journey and marvel at the beauty of sea glass as an adornment.
