My wife and I just got back from beach combing. We are here in Kingston, WA staying with my in-laws and we took their dog down for a walk along the Puget Sound shore looking for shells, interesting rocks, and sea glass. We found lots of shells, tons of rocks, though we only picked up a few small ones, and a few bits of sea glass.
Less than a month ago, we were up on Mt Desert Island, and spent some time exploring some of the beaches up there. Finding lots of shells, rocks, and a little glass.
Beach combing is relaxing, and you never know what you are going to find. And it is free! We took a zip lock bag with us, and just dropped in the shells, rocks, and glass as we found them. When we get home to New York, we will boil them in water to kill any bacteria and stuff on them, and to clean them. My wife will use them in her crafting.
We haven’t found a lot of sea glass, but it could be that we are just looking in the wrong places. Maybe out on the Pacific Coast we might find more. Right now it seems easier to find sea glass on eBay. But at least we found lots of shells. Back when I was kid, we used to find glass floats, and other interesting stuff.
