Sea Glass Museum:

A rainbow array of sea glass.

      I mentioned recently in this post that I loved taking home bits of sea glass as free souvenirs from my small trip to Fort Bragg. Another city attraction I loved was the Sea Glass Museum which is run by Captain Cass (yes, a real captain!) and admittance is completely free and donations are much appreciated. The building is filled to the brim with display cases featuring a rainbow array of frosted sea glass, books loaded with information and photos, and gorgeous handmade jewelry. Given the chance, I might have stayed to gaze at the jewels of glass all day!


While the beaches of Fort Bragg were being utilized as dump sites,
they would routinely burn the beaches because the trash was not
being carried away to the ocean. This process created mottled
pieces of one of a kind fire glass as seen above!

This aqua color reminds me of the ocean where these treasures were found.

Yellow is one of my favorite colors of sea glass to find along with lavender.

Black see glass looks a lot like stones or rocks but when held to the light you can see thru it!
(After re-examining a piece of dark black glass I found I discovered it was actually red!)

Soft pink shades can be difficult to find, sometimes this color can be created in clear glass when it reacts with the sunlight! 

I would feel lucky to find a big circular piece of a blue bottle one day! 


Yours,
Nico
