where the glass is

where the glass is

i love sea glass and have spent many happy hours sifting through the pebbles of lake superior beaches looking for specks of rounded and polished glass. but minnesota in particular, and america in general is a place where we tend to throw away cans more often than bottles, and beer more often than wine. it wasn’t until i sat on a mediterranean beach, just ashore from centuries of ships stocked with bottles of wine, that i understood what sea glass was all about. there is a famous line from willie sutton, who said he robbed banks because “that’s where the money is.” i sit on the beach just outside of sète france, because that’s where the sea glass is.

    I gasped when I saw today’s still! Now I’m even more excited to comb Irish beaches in the week that follows this one. Any experience there?

    • Hello Patty,
      I am flattered I made you gasp. I can’t think of a better compliment. I have never been to Ireland. Hoping to get there some day. You will have to report back to me on how good the beach combing is–because plans will have to be accordingly. Naturally.
