"Mermaids Tears"

      OMG, I don’t know this for sure and I am just guessing but I have a feeling I have a new girlfriend, wait, “Don’t count your chickens before they are hatched“ Thats another Dad Quote….. Don’t say anything. I’m not really sure but we will see soon….I do know one thing. I have a new hobby….Wanna guess what it is?….. I have become a Sea Glass collector. That’s right Sea glass. So far I have no pieces of this kind of glass. When I am wandering the beaches I look for this rare piece and hope to find some soon. I’m not alone out there looking. There are always a few of us “Beachcombers“, yes, that's title comes along with being a glass collector looking for this rare find. It’s a time consuming craft and the only risk is a nice tan or breathing in all that sea air…..I don’t care its worth it. My next project will be finding a suitable container for all the treasures I will find……For your information only and in case you want to become a collector I’ve put a link to Wikipedia so that you can tell this is a very serious hobby. Everyone is welcome. There are thousands of miles of beaches to explore. Actually, I started looking for these “Sea Gems” about two weeks ago and so far I have found only a few, almost ready pieces….Just, not qualified enough to become “Mermaids Tears” so I threw them back into the ocean so that maybe in a 100 years or so someone else can find them….Today I will look for a container to store my treasures…Good luck to all you future glass hunters and I hope you find that elusive piece you have been looking for your whole life…..
