It Found Him

Recently, Motor Man had occasion to walk on the beach with me for a short length of time.

And during those few minutes, he found his very first shard of sea glass, frosted and worn smooth by the waves.  He obliged me by allowing me to take his picture with it when we got home.

This quote I found a few days ago (author unknown) seems appropriate:

You don’t find sea glass: it finds you.

But he says there’s no chance of beachcombing becoming an obsession for him. (Guess one in the family is enough.)

  1. YAY! Well, not only did he find his first piece of glass but you got him to SMILE!!!

    Pam 🙂

  2. He made it look easy, I guess.

    good job Jr…nice pic…and you never know what may become your obsession.

  4. Yes, he may be hooked and doesn’t know it yet.

  5. awww…sometimes it takes a gentle nudge like that to experience what all the fuss is about. Cool!

  6. I agree—you and the sea glass got a smile!! Good job, Motor Man!!

  7. CH is the beachcomber in our little family of two looking for shark’s teeth. I just like to walk and people watch! MM won’t be able to stop with just one.. 🙂

  8. I ran across a cute little old man on the beach in Kitty Hawk one day while I was searching for sea glass and he said that very same thing to me! He also told me that if you find a piece that’s not quite ready with a few sharp edges to throw it back in the ocean and you will be rewarded. He was right on both accounts!

  9. That’s what he says now, but maybe he’ll change his mind just to talk on the beach with his sweetie!

  10. The first thing I wondered was if this would be the beginning of something!!

  11. Yea, I wouldn’t want to see his flip flop tan lines!! LOL

  12. I have a hunch he will have his eyes down a bit more as you walk through the sand. 🙂

  13. What a special day. I had never heard of sea glass until reading it here. Thanks for sharing with us.

  14. How cool it found him!!! One day I hope I find my own shard!

  15. He must have good eyes to have noticed the sea glass. Like Mary, I never heard of sea glass until I read about it on your blog.

    Way to go Motor Man! Maybe you have a new career in your future!

  17. Had to laugh at Motor Man’s comment. 🙂 Time will tell.

  18. I enjoyed this, so glad that he found some treasured, weathered sea glass. I like the fun in this post about your walk! I love my Mom’s bottles and jars of lake glass, where there are a few blues, a few greens and rare reds, amongst the clear and frosted pieces and bits. Worn pieces are picked up and the jagged ones thrown back to get some more wave battering…
