"Actually Marc, my partner, found that certain special marble. We were down the beach about 3 miles and had just walked around the tip of the point. The sun was really bright and you could see glass reflecting everywhere, a wonderful site that all sea glass collectors should experience. It was like finding an isle with a pirate's treasure!

"It was like finding an isle... with a pirate's treasure!"

Marc was a little bit ahead of me and I heard him go off like a little kid in a candy store. This marble that he held was about the brightest marble I had ever seen. We both considered ourselves to have been extremly lucky in finding this rare sea glass marble since several other beachcombers had not noticed this beauty where it had so proudly sat!"

— Bishop collects sea glass and sells along the Puget Sound in Washington.
