Souris by the Sea

I went beach glass picking with my son's girlfriend at this famous beach in Souris. People have walked this shore for years looking for glass that has washed up here.  There is most likely a good reason for this but I do not know it.

 

In the link, the spot on the top left picture beside the three little shops is where we were. The tide is in in the shot so there is no beach at the moment.

what a lovely beach
Mary MacADNski: It is a bit messy looking here with autumn seaweed washing up.
is it part of some beach clean up operation, Mary? in Singapore there are volunteer groups who dedicatedly do that, alas the volume of trash is much more.
Mary MacADNski: The black on the beach is seaweed that washes up in autumn. It will all disappear over winter with the movement of tides and ice. There are clean up days in late spring.

Love that stoic dune grass, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: It holds the sand as there is a road parallel to the beach and the dune prevents the sand from covering it.

Jolies vues sur cette plage.
Mary MacADNski: It is a small but nice enough beach.

I love the idea of looking for stuff on the tide line
Mary MacADNski: I am a rock person and usually pass by glass. Once my eyes got accustomed to looking for glass I was able to get into the zone and help fill the friend's quota.

Yes, I see the beach has to be cleaned up. It must be often very windy here.
Mary MacADNski: The beach will be cleaned in spring. Dead grasses and seaweeds wash up in autumn.
Perhaps they don't want people to cut their feet on it Mary
Mary MacADNski: The glass is smooth and seaworn, not able to cut feet.
Souris looks to be the type of place Maureen and I would love to visit. If I was there today I would go to the Christmas Concert St.Marys Church.
Mary MacADNski: I showed St Mary's here one time. It is a beauty.
Beachcombing is great fun, I have found some interesting things over the years, including glass, its always fascinating to think where it originated.
Mary MacADNski: My sis in law lives on a very high cliff. They throw colured glass bottles over and in sometimes months they find some great pieces. I have donated some awesome cracked vases.
An idealic looking place! Thank you for the link and Bobby's uplifting riffs!
Mary MacADNski: I am glad you enjoyed the Bobby McFerrin.
And did you find any interesting glass?
Mary MacADNski: I am a rock person and usually pass by glass. Once my eyes got accustomed to looking for glass I was able to get into the zone and help fill the friend's quota. I received a card from her yesterday made of sea glass.
