sea glass

If someone asked you what is your most prized possession, what would that be?

Mine is my sea glass collection. Hands down.

I started collecting this frosted tumbled sea treasure as a teenager. Sadly, I am no longer a teenager so you can imagine that I have quite a stash of it by now.

Most of it has been found happily on British Columbia’s West Coast shores.  Some of it has come from Maui, a big lot of it from Mexico and even some just outside of Rome along the Mediterranean in a coastal town of Anzio.seaglass3 Most commonly, I find white, beer bottle green and brown but what I am hunting for is aqua, purple, cobalt. My son found me a teensy red piece in Maui, which won him the title of Most Awesome Sea Glass Warrior! From his Mom of course. seaglass4 This won’t be a surprise if you know me but I started planning family vacations around the best sea glass locales! Shhhh. Don’t tell. I know, obsess much?

My husband and I on our last vacay took off early every morning for a beach in Mexico that had piles of the stuff. It is where they used to toss their trash into. Bad for the wildlife, good for me. I got bags of it. :0) BIG smiles!

  1. Do you collect as well? I am always trying to find pink, yellow or red but am still super happy when I find the regular colours too. Sometimes it is the shape or size that is cooler than the colour. In Mexico I found quite a few bottle rims and bottoms. I was soo freaking happy. Apparently there are sea glass marbles out there somewhere but have never found one. :0)

  2. I repeat, when’s the show? Your photos are stunning, Kim. What an eye! I love it when we find sea glass and Nick feels guilty about keeping some instead of giving it to you!! Lol! So cute!

    • Yes, thank you. I will check the book out. I am a treasure hunter. Always picking through the flotsam on the beach especially Oregon, Tofino and the Olympic Penisula. Crossing my fingers trying to find a glass fishing float.:0)
      Its good fun.

  3. I found that N. American Sea Glass website too, back when I lived in NYC and had access to shorelines where I used to find good stuff. I understand your love for it – nice photos! – and I wonder if there were any comments about the luggage on the way back from Mexico? 🙂
