I read an article a while ago about the town of Seaham up on the coast south of Newcastle. It was about a sea glass festival and talked about the lovely glass that you could find on the beach there due to a previous glass industry. I was intrigued, as, like many people, I love sea glass. So, I had been to Newcastle for a foodie fair and also a look round the galleries there (Biscuit Factory, Baltic). I decided to call in at Seaham on the way home. It was a thundery day, but in the shadow of a huge thunder cloud I had a quick beach comb. I discovered if I sat in the shingle and looked closely I could find quite a few tiny pieces, so the photo shows you just that. I enjoyed a good half hour collecting these tiny gems, and then had to retire to an Ice Cream parlour to shelter from the torrential thunder storm! will be going back there and stay longer next time!
