My New Obsession: Sea Glass
Ever since we got here, I’ve been looking for sea glass, and yesterday I ACTUALLY FOUND SOME! I learned about sea glass about a year ago when Ruby sent me a link to website where a girl was selling some really awesome sea glass jewelry. If you’ve never heard of it, sea glass is exactly what it sounds like- glass from the sea. More specifically, it is little shards of broken glass that have been worn smooth and frosted by tidal action and saltwater. And, it is the COOLEST. STUFF. EVER.
Sea glass is this whole thing that people are completely obsessed with collecting (and I can see myself becoming one of those people). Some people also get really into researching what KIND of sea glass they’ve found–in other words, what it was before it was sea glass, how old it is, etc. Apparently some sea glass dates all the way back to the 1800s.
Anyway, I’m PSYCHED to have found some on a deserted rocky beach that seemingly no one ever visits. It was kind of tricky hiking around the rocks in my flip-flops, but totally worth it.
