I got pretty full of 'beautiful view' real fast and wanted to explore! I mean, I am Lanie and that is what I do, right? And, Trey was taking so long....he had to "visit" the woods, if you know what I mean. So, then it hit me...yes! I'm gonna see if I can balance while walking on this log! I jumped up and steadied myself and then started walking! Wheee!
I almost lost it a couple times but was able to save myself and make it all the way from one end to the other! I held my arms out for balance and it worked great! Golly, that was fun.
You know the sand and stuff at the beach on the Chesapeake Bay is different to the ocean big time! In addition to sand, there are little pebbles that get left up on the beach at low tide. I also like the little lappy waves. They don't scare me like the big ocean waves do. But then again, they also don't make that wonderful big roar that the ocean waves do. Also, there is an awful lot of trash that washes up on the bay beach....seeing it all makes me really sad. I love nature and hate to see trash on the beach with one exception.....beach glass! Technically, it is trash that the big commercial boats and random fisherman throw into the bay. But the cool thing is that over many, many years of rolling around in the waves and sand, the broken glass pieces get sanded down to a smooth texture. This turns them into the prettiest pieces of glass you've ever seen! They call it Beach Glass or Sea Glass. I have a little collection at home in my camper. I was really hoping to add to it this trip. I'll have to show you guys my full collection one day.
The other SUPER cool thing you can find is sharks' teeth.....yep, you heard that right.....sharks' teeth! THAT is what Trey came along for. He didn't believe Cindy when she told him that he could find some if he looked really hard. Finally, Trey appeared from out of the woods and we started walking....looking very intently at the sand. We didn't talk much.....I guess cause we were so busy looking at the sand for treasures. Trey walked on ahead of me and I'm pretty sure it's because he wanted to find any sharks' teeth first. That's okay though, I don't mind cause I'm really looking for beach glass!
So, back to what happened next; all of a sudden, like literally at the exact same time, both Trey and I saw something that made us stop dead in our tracks! We both started to bend over to pick up the treasure, which I thought was beach glass and darned if it didn't seem like Trey was trying to beat me to it! Oh no you don't Trey-man, over my dead body!
Then, as we both got closer, I realized that there was BOTH a piece of beach glass and a shark's tooth! So Trey wasn't after my glass after all. Turns out, he thought I was after his shark's tooth!! Oh good golly, it was so stinkin' funny afterwards! We laughed til our sides hurt!
We were both so excited about our finds! My sea glass was a beautiful green color. Even though it is not one of the rare colors of sea glass, I was still super duper happy with my find. And Trey's shark tooth was da bomb! It was brown and was in perfect shape!
I have more to share about our afternoon in Part II of this adventure...lots more! In the mean time.....I'd love to hear if you have ever found a shark's tooth or some beach glass? If so, where did you find it?
