Anyone find Beach sea glass washed up on shore?

When I look for shells I also look for sea glass.

Has anyone found sea glass on any of the beaches around Sanibel Island? If so could you please let me know where.

I cannot wait to go down there and get out on the beaches!!!!

Thanks for all your help

I love sea glass too but you won't find it on Sanibel. Instead you will find so many shells you won't know what to do!

Here's a great blog that we all love that will get you excited for your visit, this is the link to shell identification:

I have found a few shards of sea glass, in the last couple of years - nothing spectacular, just brown and white pieces. Like bean said, it is rare, and I would not expect to find any.

In all my years of going to Sanibel, I've only found one piece of sea glass. It was an aqua color, tho, and very nice. I love sea glass, too.

Any where warm!

Sea Glass is getting harder to find......years ago, we would always find in on the NJ beaches. I guess people are more concious about discarding glass bottles. In the 30 plus years of visiting Sanibel, sea glass is hardly ever found.
