One of our hobbies is seaglass hunting.  The colorful treasures wash up on our shores after tumbling in the ocean - it takes about 40 years to make them smooth.  There are lots of green, white and brown pieces and we find rare colors too - pink, purples, teal blue, yellow and even red now and then.

If you like to stroll on little beaches looking for treasures, you'll be happy here along our shores.  


We even have Seaglass Treasure Maps to share with you so you can easily find the best spots.


Come and find your treasure!
