Seaglassing & Wire Wrapping

SeaGlaSSing the Beach

A short venture took us up to Nail Pond, the North Cape end of Prince Edward Island on another short beach adventure.  This was our first time staying over night with our (new to us)  Tenement on wheels. We have ventured to this end of the Island before however didn’t stay over night and had never had a coffee on the beach over looking the ocean in the wee hours of the morning. Life was grand, oh and so was the beach and others we met while out.

 A recent purchase of a traveling house on wheels took us there, equipped with food, place to sit and somewhere to sh__ and we were all set.  SeaGlass yes that is what took us there, we were in hunt of glass and some home away from home time.

We woke early in the morning and walked the beach for hours at a time collecting seaglass with the rolling tide coming in and going out. In my opinion, it is best to walk the high tide line after the tide has gone out. However, others talk about searching for seaglass on a high tide, while others dig in rock piles. Everyone has there approach to combing the beach I like to walk a straight line up the beach and come back on another line. I’ve seen people walk to the water then back up to the tide line in a zig zag motion, while others will walk for 10 feet and come back looking in the same area with the sun in the opposite direction. Beachcombing, however and for whatever you look for it is an excellent way to pass time, relieve stress, meditate, or just ponder thoughts that need to be thunk through.

Seaglass is my pleasure however I’ve bent down to pick up such things as marbles, bottle stoppers, doll parts, and rocks. I’ve noticed also that I seem to see the green and white sea glass more often than I see the brown, and I don’t see blue and red sea glass that often at all only due to the fact that they are rare pieces and not very common. On this venture I found a yellow piece of sea glass a few blue pieces and red, not a large piece but I found red.

 

 

Braxton and Mj were our tag along and they enjoyed themselves out on the hunt as well. I’m sure Mj is a search for sea glass dog. Can it be a coincidence that she stopped short of a piece of sea glass not once but twice? I doubt, it.  They had the beach to themselves and found plenty to sniff, great distances to run and just tired themselves out doing it.

It was coming onto 4 days we had been away and it weren’t for a new check-in at the Bed and Breakfast- Guy having a dentist appointment-it going to rain all day the day after I think we might just have stayed put and picked sea glass, washed and sorted it and amazed our memories with the view. 

 Each day we were amazed to wake up to such a beautiful sunrise and come the evening we were speechless to see such a show of colour in a sunset. We made a camp fire sat out and looked across the water at the glare coming from the setting sun. It was time to fold this up, make it a memory and turn home as the rain had started and we had  a bit of a drive ahead of us. 

 

 

 

 

This was the sunrise in the morning  before we left. I know we came for sea glass but found just a bit more than that. 

 

 

The ride home was a quiet one, not much was talked about and I listened to my book as Guy drove along.  Arriving home we had guests sitting in the driveway, hum it was 3:30 and they asked for a check-in of 8pm, good job we headed home when we did.

It is thanksgiving weekend, time to spend with family and friend and reflect on what we are truly blessed for and thankful for.  I was told over and over this summer that I was a blessing to guests who visited the tea room and enjoyed themselves to no end and went home and wrote me emails telling me so, that feels good. Do you reflect on something that makes you feel good? You should… until the next time take care my friend

    How beautiful! You are so lucky to find sea glass like that! (I have to buy mine and I’m pretty sure they are man made!) and your sunrises and sunsets are amazing! Love the little piece of red glass!

      Thank you, yes we are lucky to have such beaches around us. I’m missing the beach already and we have been only home 4 days
