Last week, I posted about 10 Cheap Michigan Travel Ideas and I just thought of another one due to this Free Press article. It's all about sea glass and tips on where to look for it and just the simple peaceful joy of walking along Michigan's beaches and doing a little beachcombing. We have a jar of sea glass at our house that we've collected over the years. I (like most other sea glass hunters) will not disclose the best spots I have found over the years. It's not too hard - just look for a pebbly/rocky beach and chances are you will find sea glass.
A lot of people make jewelry out of the bits and pieces of glass that the water and rocks have rounded and smoothed over the years. We like to put ours in a jar for display. While searching for sea glass in years past I have found an intact tiny medicine bottle, petoskey stones, and numerous other fossils.
The toughest color of sea glass to find? In my case - red/orange. Deep blue is probably second on the list of tough to find sea glass colors. Most common? White and various shades of green.
Here's a neat little video showing pictures of sea glass along the shore -
