A Glass Act

The weekend after last my mom and I finally made a trip to Half Moon Bay. I have been dying to go to search for sea glass for months and even though I could have gone alone on any given weekend, I've tried that before and it wasn't for me. I ended up driving back home after an hour or so because it was slightly depressing. So, I usually stick to glass hunting with my mom because we have so much fun going together.

The tide had been unusually high, but it was a beautiful day. Even though it was still more than a little chilly, the sun was out and there was hardly a cloud in the sky! I thought since there had been high tides the previous days that we might find more glass than usual, but that thought just wasn't meant to be. We still found a decent amount of glass, but it certainly wasn't like some of our earlier trips when we made out like bandits.

Regardless of how many tumbled pieces of glass we find, it's really all about spending the day with my mom doing something that we love to do. Of course it doesn't hurt that she gives me all of the glass and pretty shells that she finds. She knows how jealous I'd be if she had more cobalt blue pieces than I had or if she had more pieces that had interesting shapes, lettering, or ridges. I currently have quite a collection going on, but I have yet to commit to a project for them. We shall see! In the meantime, I'll continue collecting these little treasures and stowing them away.
