Article: Natural Beach Combed Sea Glass: A Vanishing Treasure

It's probably no surprise to anyone that sea glass is one of my favorite things... along with beach combing, in general.

Sadly, I don't get to beach comb as often as I once did. For one, there's simply not as much glass out there as there was, a decade ago-- especially during the summer months when we have "tourist season" around here, and there are almost no winds to create waves that churn up the beach. Second, the "call of life" has been strong over the past few months, and beach combing has had to take somewhat of a back seat to the basic job of "making a living."

Writing is one of my callings in life. And even when I don't have time to beach comb-- often an all-day adventure-- I do often have time to site down and write a few words.

Most recently, I found a little time to sit down an create a bit of a "pictorial essay" about sea glass, using some of the photography I have accumulated over the years. In a sense, it's an "ode to sea glass," with lots of photos and some history and background tossed in for fun.

Entitled "Natural Beach Combed Sea Glass: A Vanishing Treasure" it's published on an independent web site with lots of other articles about all manners of other subjects. I hope you'll click the link and go have a look... I had a lot of fun writing it, and I've gotten some positive feedback, so far.

Don't worry! You won't be ask to "join" anything or "log in" to anything or pay for anything-- it's free for all.
