After a good 8 days on those sunny beaches, I began to get a bit crispy which, even for my olive skin is often difficult to do. Note the beach chair, poised and ready in the back of the car in case I happen upon the perfect beach.

Sea Glass Memories:
It all came flooding back to me tonight. You see, the Sea Glass Association (see link at right) just recently spruced up the look of the Sea Glass Festival webpage. Since I'm the person who gets to help do the layout and content of the page, I got the first look at a recap of the past two years of enchanting sea glass bliss.
What's a Sea Glass Festival?
It's two days filled with sea glass related art, crafts, lectures, exhibits and hundres of crazy (in the good way) creative, adventurous beach combers who have a special penchant for those frosty little gems.
The sunroom style exhibit hall overlooked the beach in Santa Cruz, California. The air was warm and the sun was shining all weekend as the sea glass festooned room seemed to glow with color. Museum like pieces were showcased upon white tables, while jewelry displays and table-top busts boasted glints of silver chain showcasing sea glass gems. Stories were traded, specimens were shown and prizes were awarded.
We Gotta Go Back:
There's a force...something unexplainable pulling many back to that alluring sea glass weekend. Though we cannot step back in time, we can review the bright photos and plan for next October!
