The 3rd Annual Eastern Shore Sea Glass Festival in St. Michaels was held this Saturday.  Even through it was raining off and on it was a great event. I guess everyone was glad to get out and enjoy warmer weather.  Sea Glass are shards of glass that has been naturally weathered in salt water.  They become frosted and the sharp edges are rounded.  Artist use sea glass to make beautiful jewelry, and other items.

I guess being on the Shore, having warmer weather, rain not snow, and looking at the sea glass and garden art made me fee: YES! Summer will soon be here.

In the fall, there will be another sea glass festival hosted by Ophiuroidea.  Please make sure you attend, it is a fun festival.
