After watching a few TV shows about hunting sea glass on the beaches around San Francisco, I was inspired to try this experience myself. Living in Seattle with the tons of beaches in the area, I thought to myself… why not? I asked my husband to show me some places where glass might be found and we jumped in the car and started down the road. That in itself is an adventure; there are so many water front parks in the region.
I had my doubts to whether we would find anything, but it was so cool we found many different pieces the first time out. Within 15-20 minutes I found a few spots amongst the rocks where the glass seemed to settle on the beach. The wind was blowing strong from the west, but the bad weather didn’t stop me from digging through the wet and rough stones to find the glass I wanted. I found several pieces of amber, green, white, and the most beautiful orange glass.
