Welcome to Sea of Glass- a blog about hunting glass treasures...

Welcome! This is a blog about the modern day treasure hunt... When the waves are flat, and the air is cold, I am usually in pursuit of glass treasures... Call me a digger, a glass-tracker, or a modern-day archaeologist. Whatever the title, for this pirate it's all about the hunt. Whether it's scouring various beaches for ocean tumbled sea glass and historical trinkets or digging for bottles and native american artifacts, I will be sure to post my adventures here.

Bottle Top Beach

There is a beach that we like to walk quite often.  It is about a mile long, looks to the ocean, but borders the bay.  The beach is mostly sand, but between the high and low tide lines is a boggy area that looks like sponge. It is within the mud and muck here and the tidal rivulets where we find some of the largest and best looking sea glass to date.  It's odd though...  There is not much of the typical, average, ordinary, smaller-sized seaglass to be found.  A majority of the seaglass found here is large.  I'm talking whole seaglass bottles, whole bottle bottoms, complete sides, and more often than not, whole bottle tops- sometimes complete with corks and bottle toppers.  The beach is often crowded in the summer, and we don't find much seaglass when the beach is populated with families, but the winter is a different story.  The heavy storm systems that move through the northeast and the winter currents of the back bays seem to unearth new glass every day.  We have been to this beach every day for the past three days, and have collected some really nice seaglass.  Judging by the colors, and the lip/finish styles of the bottle tops, I am beginning to realize that much of the glass that we find at this location is at least 100 years old.  I have posted some pictures below.

A closer look...
A couple days of trips to "Bottle Top Beach" makes for a nice collection of seaglass...
