Unseasonably cool weather found us at a local beach today. Officially called a “field trip” for my homeschooling kiddo, it really was just an excuse for the little ones to run off energy, throw sticks and rocks in the bay and to comb the sands for washed up bits and pieces of old bottles. Sea glass. An interesting science experiment…how the waves and rocks polish and soften the jagged pieces of broken glass down to smooth, opaque beauties. We find greens and ambers but rarely blues, those continue to be elusive. Today’s treasures, along with previous finds, will eventually be used in crafting but for now rest in a jar and in our memories of a simple Tuesday morning at the beach.
