Gems from the sea ~ Zen mode! Explore, Dec 12, #334
Here is my very nerdy confession....
I am what is known as a "beach gemmer"...someone that wanders along the beach, picking up and collecting washed over pieces of glass...( I assure you that I am not the only freak out there with this strange hobby... apparently there are lots of us, even though I have failed to yet come across another :P)
Many of these pieces have come from as far away as Vietnam, Thailand,
the UK, USA and Ireland...
( some even collected from the beach that Bono lives near when I stalked him whilst over there!*giggles*... yes i really am that pathetic!!)
I have no idea why, or what I am ever going to do with all of the glass that I have collected, but I always have a great sense of satisfaction when finding a beautiful sea gem to take home and add to my big jar. ( see below image for the result of 3 years worth of collecting!)
Anyway... being the start of summer and all, my sea gem fascination has started all over again... I took my collection down to the beach and took a few snaps, and in the process had quite a few curious bystanders watching and wondering what the hell I was doing as I stacked and played with my glass. :P
Its ohhh so pretty wouldnt you agree??!!!
( Gav... you had better not be laughing!?)
