My favorite month is June. The weather is settled, finally, and things are growing in the garden. In our new town, which is a fishing village, things are coming to a halt.

June 15 2024

When the lobster season winds down, things change in the neighborhood. Now the emphasis is on tourism, which means more visitors, and an increase in motorhomes and RV's.

It's not bad, just a change. We go on our usual road trips to the local beaches, and look for seaglass, and stop in at the fish shop to see what's fresh. Our latest favorite is sea bass, or striped bass, but we'll take haddock if that's not available. Our cooking method has finally reached the pinnacle of goodness, so we have that one day a week, with possibly some leftovers to enjoy a second day.

The day we went to Guernsey Cove to look at the beach and the crashing waves, I fell over when I saw an orange piece of seaglass in the sand. There is a knack to finding it, and it's best if you look towards the sun as you walk slowly along, looking at the ground.

The sea glass seems to sparkle and shine that way, making it easier to spot. Even if other people have walked on exactly the same piece of beach, they might not have seen it, or uncovered it with their footprints.

The other thing we look for is small pieces of driftwood to make into various driftwood crafts which can be a combination of different things together, like seaglass, small pebbles, or shells.
