All that glitters isn't gold...

Yesterday morning, I was still at my beach house, and Cynthia and I woke up really early to head down to my beach for low tide and to look for seaglass. I had never looked or found any sea glass before, so this was a rare occassion for me. We searched, and the conditions were fairly bad due to the hurricane that is brewing in the Atlantic, but I was able to find three pieces!! I was dancing around like an excited 6 year old, and collected my pieces in a yellow plastic sand castle mold.



The night before, Cynthia and I hung out at my favorite cafe on the island (the place where I did chocolate fondue with Gina and Stephanie last time I was there). Fabulous. We chatted about life and boys and whatnot.



Me and Cynthia one afternoon at my house.

Summer is now ending very quickly. I hope I get one more trip in before Labor Day...

I have a few of the glass balls that were buoys (sp?) that my family found on the beach. They're that same color of blue and are decorations in my beach-themed bathroom, lol.

Alex, I can't believe I missed you this weekend at the shore! You went to Cafe Baccio...I'm so jealous! I've missed all my usual LBI outings this summer because of work, it really does seem like the whole summer just slipped by. I miss you and maybe I'll catch ya this weekend. :-)
Love ya! -Jennifer

Jenn, remember when you and I used to go to Bacio, and Kevin, our favorite waitor, who was in love with Kendra, would make us free Italian sodas of suprise multiple flavors in white styrofoam cups with lids and straws??

At low tide, lots of shells and small objects get churned at the beach. Among this are pieces of glass bottles (basically litter) that have been repeatedly pounded against the waves and sand and are smooth with no rough edges. You can see in the pic, the one brown piece is really smooth and not even shiny any more. The piece of green is still fairly sharp, but not sharp enough to be cut with.

They are usually brown, green, white, or even blue. Lilac and red are very rare, but pretty.
