Ocean Orbs and Tidal Treasures

By Lucy Tapper

sea glass checklist book

Sea glass hunters Lucy and Steve and their family spend weekends in Devon, England, scouring the sand for treasures to add to their collection. They created the handy Sea Glass Guide with information about beach finds, concise explanations, clear photos, and room to add your own notes. Next to each beach find is information and history about where it may have come from. The guide fits in a beach bag with your snacks and gear and features your name on the cover and checklists to track your growing collection. Learn more at www.fromlucy.com.
