Sea Glass Beach Bucket List

Did a search for sea glass beaches and found a few in the US but … the “look don’t take”  policies may be too much to bear. 😉

There’s a Sea Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, California that looks like a really fun field trip and I can’t believe that we were in Hanapepe Bay, in Kauai, Hawaii – twice – and had no idea that they had a sea glass beach. Good reason to go back, I guess.

There’s a bunch of Sea Glass Beaches in Northern California and since I’ve never been to any of them – there are no photos so please visit Sea Glass Beaches in Northern California by clicking here.

  1. Fort Bragg, California Sea Glass Beach
  2. Del Monte Sea Glass Beach in Monterey, California
  3. Davenport, California Sea Glass Beach
  4. Cayucos, California Sea Glass Beach – and they have a sea glass festival.
  5. Abaco Islands, Bahamas has a sea glass beach.
  6. So does Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.
  7. Bermuda has a sea glass beach too.

And finally, there’s the sea glass beach of Ussuri Bay on Russia’s Pacific shoreline where after decades of dumping glass and porcelain into the ocean Mother Nature turned trash into treasure. Gorgeous.

The closest thing I’ve gotten to a sea glass beach were the glass gardens of the now closed “Half to Have It” shop in Halfmoon Bay.  So sad.

Smile, it’s Friday!

The featured photograph was a glass on glass piece called “Swimming with the Fishes” and was sold to a good home.

Me, My Selfie and I

Didn’t know what a  Selfie was, until my kids told me.

According to the Urban Dictionary  a #Selfie is … A picture taken of yourself that is planned to be uploaded to Facebook, Myspace or any other sort of social networking website. You can usually see the person’s arm holding out the camera in which case you can clearly tell that this person does not have any friends to take pictures of them so they resort to Myspace to find internet friends and post pictures of themselves, taken by themselves. A selfie is usually accompanied by a kissy face or the individual looking in a direction that is not towards the camera.

Thank gawd that’s cleared up … and here I’ve been taking pictures of myself all my life and I didn’t have a clue what it was called:)

Beach Feet is probably the first in a series of #Selfie Feet Photos that I’ve taken over the years.

It was just me, my Selfie and I in Kauai ’05.

Being alone does weird and amazing things to a person.

When was the last time you were alone?

Exactly.

If you take a journey alone, you look for things to do … like taking your 2 feet places and then documenting their time there.  Plus … it gives you a good reason to have a pedicure.

Found the answer that I was looking for so I Photoshopped it.

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
— Henry David Thoreau
