I live in Northern Virginia and travel to the nearby beaches often. I enjoy your magazine and love the pictures on Facebook. Looking forward to my next magazine.

This is very frustrating…I’ve been a subscriber for a while…I don’t have a password…I tried to leave a email and name should be enough.
I have just signed up for a friend….she has no email address so I used mine…Please do not send me two issues as you have in the past when I tried to gift a subscription.
There has to be an easier way to do this.
There was no way to even put a password in the blank.
Thank you.

Hi it’s Joan from beautiful Carmel By The Sea 🌊 California. I’m just wondering how I can submit some wonderful beach theme photos to you? I also make beach themed crafts, thanks 🙏 Joan campbell

Please accept my membership i have gone through the processcat least 5 times and you keep asking me to repeat. The subscription was a gift and im anxious to receive notices and the publication

What’s the reason the subscription rate is $40 for 6 issues. That’s ridiculous. There are financial publications that teach how to make money that are less than that.

Obviously heavily addicted to sea glass and basically all thing beachcombing! Marbles and stoppers are always a favorite find for me. But it’s the truly unique things that keep me hunting the shores as much as humanly possible. When you find your first message in a bottle, if you haven’t caught the beach combing bug, you will then. I love stories of how people started beach combing and what treasures they love finding most.

I walk the beaches of Lake Erie Oh. Mostly green&brown glass. I haven’t found much, but I’m hopeful. Looking forward to receiving my first copy of your magazine and hopefully making it to some beach glass hotspots in the future.

I beachcomb Lake Erie. I look mostly for stones but some glass too. I would like to see more stones!! I have found Agate, Quartz, possible nephrite jade, garnet, serpentine, aventurine abd labradorite.

I believe beach comber should be taught that if you find a piece of glass that is still shiny At this point It’s not beach glass, it’s only a piece of broken glass and should be left , because it’s not finished yet.

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.

Lanette Virtanen January 13, 2019

Looking forward to learning more about beach combing.

Carrie Norlin January 13, 2019

I forgot to put my email in at the end of the survey! And I want to win these lovely items!!!! Looking forward to my 1st issue.

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!

@transformedbylakemichigan January 13, 2019

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?

Judith Buchalski January 13, 2019

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!
