I live in Toms River, NJ and truly enjoy beach combing. Originally I wasn’t aware of what sea glass was and would give it to my friend’s sister. Eventually, I realized that I may want to keep the sea glass I’d found, and, before long, I was waking up at six AM to go search for sea glass while my dad was surfing. Although I do not live in California, the Big Island, etc., I make the best of what my own local beaches may emit. I am always constantly researching sea glass spots and exploring new beaches around me. Even when I cannot find sea glass on a particular beach, the sheer feeling from being surrounded by the calming ocean waves and serenity is a gift within itself. Although most of my day is occupied by school and sports, I try to find time to be at the beach, no matter the season.

I live in Herne Bay in England and have always scavenged our local beach but since my daughter has begun making and selling ‘sea glass art’ I cannot help searching for sea glass each time I walk the dog. It still amazes me just how much is washed up each tide although to us yellow, amber or brown pieces are the holy grail. 90% of sea glass here is clear, green or blue.
I have been inspired enough to attempt my own sea glass / beach art . . watch this space.

I am one of those who just adore dragging about anything I find on the beach, home with me!! Love the smell, sounds, all weather elements pertaining to the beach.
Of course I always have trash bags in tow that I fill also. Love to help others comb for their treasures – such as angel wings rocks- I only found one in my life, but had just met a woman 5 minutes earlier who collects them to make on her fairy houses. It was gorgeous, so I found her a little ways down the beach and handed it to her. She was in disbelief. But it was meant for me to find, so that I could finally see one, but meant for her to have for her craft. The beach can bring amazing gifts to you!!

You have a very beautifully put together magazine and the use of photos grab my attention. Makes me want to pick up the magazine now.

I love the shore! Large bodies of water have always calmed me. Even on stormy days I find the most peace outdoors exploring the shores! I find serenity and new appreciation for life every moment I explore! It ignites me! I love igniting that in others through my pictures and words! Beachcombing is my passion and I’m blessed to be able to explore!

Searching for seaglass is my and my 13 year old daughter’s new passion that we do together. Being at the ocean is so calming and peaceful and when you find even the tiniest piece of seaglass, it makes your day. We have collected some very pretty pieces along the NH and ME coastlines and are looking forward to searching the shores of Canada this summer! Seaglass hunting is our “thing” that I hope will last forever.

I just signed up for a subscription to your magazine, but the form only asked for my billing address. I’m concerned because my shipping address is different…which I am sure is true for many of the snowbirds who would be likely to subscribe.
This problem also means I cannot give a gift subscription to a friend, who is also an avid beachcomber. Can you help me with this?

I am a shellaholic. Can walk the beach for hours. Have developed a fairly keen eye over the years and have finally resorted to using a shell scoop. Also keep a phone in my pocket for unusual photo ops. Sanibel was responsible for my addiction!
