Last year on a road trip to Mendocino we stopped at a little sea-glass museum and learned a little about it. It basically comes from bottles, jars, tableware, windows, windshields, ceramics, even shipwrecks, which are rolled and tumbled in the ocean for years. The ocean rounds off the edges, and the glass becomes worn into a frosted glass.
We always look for it when we walk on beaches. Well today we walked along the beach here in the Albissola Marina in Savona, Italy and there was Mediterranean sea-glass everywhere. This is another tactile experience for me. Rubbing sand off the glass which the ocean mysteriously smoothed and rounded. It's also pretty to look at. This is the most sea-glass we've ever found in one place.
Below is the jackpot of sea-glass from my pocket. Typically you'd cash in the jackpot right? Well, I might narrow it down to a few pieces to keep and bring to the Merida house, but I really can't add weight to my travel-carry-on load, so I guess I will have to give it back to the Mediterranean ocean to continue refining.
