Blue Monday...Blue Skies...Blue H2O

Hey all you gypsea's..
Hope you had  fabulous weekend, 
I finally went beach side to test out the back,
the foot with only 1/2 feeling left and so on.
But sad to say... this mermaid can no longer go
hours and hours on end and scour...
But I did get in enough time to get a few scores...
With the blue water...

Baby seagulls in a forming tide pool...


Awesome shot due to some high winds..
See...?
The mini pirate and I got to hunting!
He also served as my watch dog for any holes in the sand 
that I may not see, 
and we know, I don't want any of that!
So, one of our first signs, was the usual clear/white sea glass.


Now is the time for the snails..(Moonstones) to start appearing..
And then to my utmost surprise...
What do you think I came across?
I was shocked!
Yes!! A sand dollar!
In New Jersey!!
Not as pretty as the ones I find in Florida,
but just that we found one here made up jump for joy!

So as the pirate and I finished up in the water and back onto the sand...

We nicknamed it the Day of the Dead, due to all the washed up horseshoe crabs.
Then I stumble upon another of my favorite beachy treasures...
Tell me that is not the coolest piece EVER!!!!
So by the time I knew I needed to rest this achy back..
Here are a few of my scores.

I like!
Yeppers..
That is BLACK seaglass!

Ahhh.. just looking at them makes me happy!
So stay tuned, this coming weekend will be my last at the 
Jersey Shore.
Cause this mermaid is finally heading south!!!
Yippee!!
So get your Sand and Sea posts ready..
I think this may call for a giveaway perhaps on Sunday...
Ya think?

  4. I just love sea glass. I think it's really beautiful the way all of the perfect conditions come together to make a little treasure. In Miami sea glass is becoming kind of rare because there are so many ordinances against glass on the beach. When I find a piece here, I know it's journey has been even more incredible. And thanks so much for following my blog! -Lola from Buddhist blog

  11. So lovely to have you back. And what a day you had at that terrific beach. A beautiful spot with a gorgeous pirate who is looking out for you and great finds too. Now that's what I call the simple pleasures. Good luck with your recovery.

  12. So happy to hear that you got out and about plus found some FAB treasures! The sand dollar is totally amazing and I'm always envious of sea glass finds (we just don't have any here at all!).

    Glad to hear you'll be in Florida this weekend.

    Big, beachy hugs,
    Marie

  14. Do you know...I thought I was following your blog until I double checked? Well now it's official!
    Walking on the Beach, gathering Sea Treasures is one of my favorite things to do. Breathing in the Ocean's air, I love it all. The lavender bottle toppers you see in my most recent post supposedly are Sea Treasures as well. I love them dearly.

  25. Hi Sweetie...
    Happy Pink Saturday and so happy you were able to make it to the shore. How beautiful your treasures are. I love the black see glass, what a wonderful find, right before Halloween as well. I love, Love the pale green glass. Can't wait to see what you create. So pretty.

    Can't wait to see your new home. I know you are anxious to get moved and settled in your new area. Thank you for taking me along to the beach this evening. I felt the sand between my toes, the wind on my face and heard the cries of the seagulls as they called back and forth. Nothing like the smell of the ocean.

    Have a safe trip moving. I will be watching for new location posts. Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry
