  1. Beachcombing and Books

    When I'm at the beach I find all sorts of things sea glass, shells, fossils and even agates. It's really handy to have some books back home to help find out what things are and of course you can always Google things :)

  2. Working with a piece of sea glass is a wonderful thing. When I find a piece of sea glass I wonder what it was before it was broken and tossed around in the sea and batterered against the rocks for over 50 years sometimes even a 100 years.  And I still wonder at the beautiful finish the sea gices to the glass, smooth and frosty but pitted with wonderful 'C' shapes or depending on the tides just smooth and frosty.  Here are some examples of different finishes on sea glass.

  3. Guess what I saw today - A1 Steam Engine Tornado - Yay! :)
