These are glass floats found on the beaches of California. We were walking along Dillon beach after a storm, we had picked up several large wood and foam floats for our collection when I said to James, "I sure would like to find a glass float today" two steps later it was right in front of me on top a pile of seaweed! It was like I made a wish and it was granted right there at my feet. That is my favorite float in my collection. We are hitting the beach again this weekend but so far we haven't had any of the strong winter storms that send up all the treasures, as soon as we do we will be there. I am not sure what it is but there is this mysterious nature to these treasures, stories I will never know. I suppose it is the same thing that attracts me to things with a history, I know they have had wonderful adventures along the way.
