Beachcombing


Being in Atlantic Canada means you are never too far away from any beach. This week we took a road trip to Nova Scotia and we hit a few beaches along the coast.

This was a favourite  explore we went on today as we came to a rather large stream that was empting into the ocean.  The question was should we cross to the other side to search for seaglass or not?

Your wondering if I found any, right?  Yup I sure did and this was my favourite find.

I haven’t wirewrapped it yet and it is such a round piece that it might look better just in my showcase in the gift shop at home.

The sun was hot today and we reached 20 degrees and it felt to hot at times as we are not used to it being so warm.  We are about to get a blast of summer come Sunday as the temp is to reach 23 degrees. Now that the sun has gone down I have a face full of sunburn.

When the sun was just right I found an old stump on the beach and used it as a prop for a few pictures.

This is the new seaglass look I’m going for this year.  I hope visitors in the gift shop like the new look.

This is a double wrap I started, I enjoy the look and balance this piece gives.

I hope you are enjoying your week. Be sure to take time for yourself and perhaps a good cup of tea and a new book will help.

Blessings, Cindy

Yesterday was dedicated to being a beachcombing day especially since we have waited so many days to get there and had one interruption or another, but hey that’s life right?

I was brave and took my new camera to the beach, I know ah? took some great shots, amazing photos of the light and shadows on rocks, and ya I took a lot of pictures of the sea glass I found in it’s original, yup I did.  I can’t share those picture with you, no, never, they are memories left there, left behind, sad but true.  Oh, my camera is fine, I’m not sure I will be. I felt like I’d gone to the movies and not brought enough money for popcorn and could smell it all around me, disappointed again.  I left the memory card in the computer at home again, memories that’s all they are.

You remember Tamara I told you about, she is from The Netherlands and staying with us at the bed and breakfast?  Well we took her beachcombing, sort of wanted to share some of what we do with her, you know. I’m not sure I was up to sharing my age and forgetfulness but she got some of that as well.  Anyway she tells me I might be able to retrieve those pictures from my camera so I’m waiting till she wakes up and then we will see. Today she leaves to go home and she has already mentioned to me that it might be a sad day for her, but I have something planned, a surprise I think she might like it. 

I can’t send you away without a picture of PEI, so I found this from another beach-combing day, I hope you like it?

What would beachcombing be without a little seaglass, nothing more than a movie without popcorn, right?

So here are the rocks and seaglass I was talking about, found a picture from my collection to share. 

Aren’t our red rocks beautiful? From a seaglunker like me, this was a pretty good find.

Well I hope you enjoyed our memory of seaglassing on PEI. As for the memory card, well I guess I have only myself to blame as I too have become too reliant on technology and less concentrated on what the importance is in a lesson well learned. I might have missed out on some beautiful shots but I got to spend the day with two people I love, that is the true memory.

If you live by the sea, make sure to beachcomb ~ Cindy
