Spring Hunt

It was almost sixty degrees today and in New England that means everyone is out in shorts, on bikes and blades or just going for walks. For me, these last few days have meant I’ve been able to hunt at the beach. The air off of the water is still raw and chilly but there is more warmth to the shawl of sun the sun shoulders me with.

Yesterday, I found a weathered dark cornflower blue piece of sea glass. I’ve found blue pieces on my beach but often they are pieces of glass not yet cooked. I found a light blue piece of pottery which was also weathered. My other favorite was the lip of a bottle, wider┬áthan for soda and it had a pattern. The pattern, though distinct, was also muted and had the sugar coated look. There were soft hues of purple and nice aqua pieces as well as various shades of green but mostly it was the ocean air, the sandy gravel and the scanning the shore which I was taking in, gathering and collecting.

Spring is coming!
