I promised Karen to share some of my beachcombing finds. I find it to be very relaxing to walk along the beach and search out anything of interest. Here are some groups I found during my recent trip to Kauai:
Beach Glass…. I organized them into light and dark beach glass:

and light beach glass:
I also found some lovely beach pottery that had been transformed by the ocean:

Then, on a black sand beach on the south side of the island, I discovered these lovely kukui nuts just waiting to be picked up:
I love to also collect shells:
and yet another close up:
some sand from Glass Beach for my collection:
WIP: Been working on some jewelry for my metal arts class, quilting Lori’s quilt for her daughter Cara, and also working on yet another freeform crochet scarf for myself. I bought most of the yarn in a little yarn shop in Hanalei, so I’m making it to remind me of the island:
Nothing like a trip to my favorite yarn shop to make a girl feel better:
Speaking of yummy yarn, a message to Nancy that her blog prize went in the mail today- sent priority via the US Postal System.
Dreaming of Beach Glass… A LONG standing obsession for me is beach glass, and hunting for beach glass. Let me know if any reader just happens to live on the shore and had oodles of frosty sea glass to share or trade. Will WORK for Sea Glass!!!
My DD came by this morning and casually mentioned she was heading for Santa Cruz with friends to swim, search the tide pools, etc with friends. I asked her to bring her dear Mom back some beach glass, and told her that hunting for sea glass is a good thing. I’m crossing my fingers…. Carla
