“Beach Combing”


Description from Little Round Chick: Went to the beach this morning and spent about 3 hours looking for some beach glass. Disappointed to say the least. Found two small pieces neither of which had been in the water very long so they didn't have that nice frosted finish. However, I've never seen so many intact sand dollars. Guess what I brought home...? Right. Sand dollars! Also found some very interesting pieces of large shells, just the heavy spiral parts, that might make some interesting jewelry when combined with wire and who knows what else. The temp was 62* and if I could I would send some of this weather to all of you who are being blanketed with snow.

    It was very nice day until about 5:30pm then it started raining like a son-of-a-gun. But at least it isn’t cold.

    Sorry to hear your beach combing didn’t go as you hoped, but it sounds like you still came up with treasure! We had a sand dollar bonanza one year when we vacationed near San Diego, my 2 kids picked up about 15 sand dollars each! Such fun!

    And you have a beautiful pick here too!

    Beautiful LRC!

    I glad you shared your beach combing results with us. I was wondering how it turned out. Sorry you didn’t find the beach glass you were hoping for but the sand dollars and shells sound exciting to me!!
