A Fish Made of Sea Glass

As Tommy and I walked toward the visitor center on Spectacle Island, we were stopped by the beautiful piece of art... on the ground! The pieces of blue, white, brown, and the occasional blue became an intricate picture of a fish - complete with a fin, tail, and eyes.

Of course, seeing no ownership, we had to sign our names at the bottom of the artwork. I later found out that this was the result of the Sea Glass Tour led by the Rangers on the Island twice a day. Many visitors would follow the assigned rangers to the beach (where it is abundant with these colorful artifacts) and collect the pieces that interested them the most. These special beach glass would then be turned into pictures of marine animals or anything related to the ocean! I'm so glad I was able to stumble upon this and can't wait to see more tomorrow!
