My collection of sea glass was found on Palm Beach Island on the East Coast of Florida. Hours of walking and searching in washed up sea rubble at low tide after it has been pushed ashore. I discovered excellent places to find glass are among rocks where it gets trapped during the high tides. The best time to find sea glass is after a storm. Ocean contents are tumbled and thrust to the shore with great force from wind and waves…this is a great time to find all kinds of treasures along the coast and in shell beds.
Approximately two weeks after a hurricane is prime time for collecting. I found over 200 pieces of glass in one day following hurricane Dorian in 2019. The proverbial dust or “sand” has time to settle. I was on the hunt for several hours.
