Sea Glass Festival Prince Edward Island

Each year I think about joining in and setting up a table at the SEa Glass Festival. This year the festival is July 26th, to July 28th in Souris at the lighthouse. I’m going to visit on Friday night, take the camper and stay up in Souris this time. I have an odd piece of seaglass that I’d like the guest speaker Richard LaMotte to identify. So why am I not in the festival each year? Hum, good question I think I’d love to be and then we get busy with the Bed and Breakfast, guests coming in the Tea Room and time passes and I
get to about 2 weeks away from the festival and say, oh its too late again this year.

I hope to see you at the sea glass festival this year, remember it is being held at the lighthouse not wood Island this year.

Mermaid’s (Tear) Wrapped Seaglass Pendant


Just for a Tear

North Shore beachcombingThe shores of Prince Edward Island were a little frozen when we beachcombed yesterday. However, I had to have that first piece of seaglass to wire wrap for a New Year’s Pendant.

December 31, 2011, our way to bring in the New Year.

This is our beachcombing beach on the north shore of PEI, notice the ice on the tops of the rocks? Ya! no kidding the North Shore was fabulous and the winds were about 10 knots, gorgeous day if you were dressed for it.




One tear cried onto the shore.

Winter sea glass findsAs I’m walking the beach this rolled up in front of me. I felt like I was serving as a valet parking attendant at the Ritz and a Rolls-Royce had just pulled up for me to pick up. One Mermaid’s Tear, a beautiful piece of seaglass – was there a subliminal message here? I think so, “quick pick it up” I heard yelling from the back of my head.





Lots of colour found today.

Rare orange seaglass

 These seaglass shards complete my collection of finds for the day.  Notice the orange piece of seaglass?  I looked up West Coast Sea Glass, they have a poster marking the rarest of all pieces.  What a journey a piece of sea glass makes until it arrives in hand.
