Sea Glass Heart

I was given the gift of a sea glass heart at Sunnyside Beach on Wednesday. . . 

As far as sea glass quality standards go, it's not high quality, meaning it's not worn down quite enough yet and is still too smooth. To me, though, it's high quality and special because it's from my children, it's blue, and it's a heart! ♥

You'd be amazed at all the beautiful hearts in our world! Look around and I bet you will see some, too! To see wonderful hearts that others have found, visit Guest Heart Thursday.

At Sunnyside Beach Again!

I just love Sunnyside Beach in Steilacoom, WA. It's one of my favorite places to visit. We went at low tide on Wednesday. It wasn't a really low tide, but we were able to walk along the shoreline looking for sea glass, which we love to do. We also looked for sea creatures, but it wasn't a very good day for that, perhaps because the water wasn't quite low enough? The last time we went there, we saw a whole lot of starfish, and this time we almost didn't see any, but toward the end of our walk, my son spotted one, and near it I spotted another one, both in the water.

The first starfish we saw that day.

This is the other starfish--it's covered by seaweed!

The weather was rather crazy. When we first arrived there was some sunshine, but that didn't last. We had light showers, fog out over the water; we even had sleet! Then there was sunshine again.

These pictures were taken facing the same direction (towards McNeil Island). . .

We noticed that you could actually see the change from gray to blue... the blue was moving to the left and pushing away the gray!
