Sea Glass Hunt

A few weeks ago we went out searching for sea glass.  Basically this is any glass, like from bottles, that made it’s way into the ocean, and through time has become smooth from being tumbled in the ocean.  There is one location we know of on the island that has a ton of sea glass, so we headed there to search.  The only problem with this location is that it is very hard to get to and requires that you were good shoes and have your hands free.  It is steep and rocky.

Here are some pictures from the location.

I have actually snorkeled out here before while Ryan and others were spear fishing.  That’s how we know about this location.

We did find tons of sea glass, and I am sorry I don’t have any pictures.  Now it is boxed up and ready to go to Ryan’s mom.  She is really artistic and into crafts so we thought she could use the glass for projects.

On our way home from this location, we stopped for pizza at a place we have only seen before, but never tried.  It is called Royal Pizza.

We ordered a 4 cheese pizza.  It was not what we were expecting, but it was still good.  Not sure why we thought it would have 4 cheeses we were used to as Americans.  It had 4 of their cheeses.  Go figure!  Similar to the pizza we ordered in Paris where the cheeses were all French cheeses.  At least it was still good.

QUESTIONS:  Have you ever heard of sea glass?  Do you like to comb the beach for shells and/or sea glass?  What’s your favorite pizza topping?

I've never been "sea glass hunting" before! I wasn't sure what the point was, until you explained about the crafty mother-in-law. Yep, makes sense now!!

Pizza toppings; green olives!!! Also tomatoes and mushroom. And of course, lots of sauce and cheese.

I remember looking for beach glass as a kid in Cape May NJ. Now with our beach house, people are always bringing in shells to decorate the house!

Its funny...it never occurred to me that anyone wouldn't have heard of sea glass. But then, I grew up on Cape Cod. I always look for special pieces...dark blue is fun to find. I also have a few pieces that were part of my grandparents' collection.

Sometimes, I am so JEALOUS of the picturesque and sunny weather that you get to live by.
ANCHOVIES! I LOVE em...I know that is crazy, but now that I have had the real ones, that with olives (boy, am I craving SALT, or what??)

Or a pear and carmelized onion and fig topping. Super yummy!

That pizza looks delicious! That is neat that it was four french cheeses. So neat that you get to experience different types of foods.

I just love all kinds of veggies on my pizza!

I have never seen of hear of sea glass. Let me know if Ryan's mom makes anything with it. I'd love to see it.
