It’s been freakishly warm and beautiful in Chicago this week, so I’m making good use of the nice weather by going to the beach a lot. Of course, most of my time at the beach is spent with my head down, as I like to look for seaglass/beachglass/lakeglass. I even have a set on Flickr devoted to my seaglass collection. The above photo is of a piece of security glass, which has been polished and frosted by who knows how many years of tumbling around in Lake Michigan. I found a good photo on Flickr of what it probably looked like before it went into the lake.
Yesterday was a particularly successful seaglass day, as I found two beautiful cobalt blue pieces and a very rare red shard.
