So, I'm walking the beach looking for glass when spot this little guy not ten feet from the surf.....first one I've seen there in all these years!
I "almost" never go anywhere with my snake hook and bags in the car....guess what...all at home!
When I saw it I called my wife and son over to were I was standing and without pointing it out told them "not to move, that there was a rattlesnake within a ten foot radius of them, find it", and I walked off a few yards...it took them over a minute to spot it...
Then my wife asks, "Can we catch it?" I replied, "don't have any of my snake stuff"...she says, "Go to the car and find something...."
I ended up using 2 dip nets, a shell bag, and soft sided cooler to safely catch it...later when we went to town I bought a small tote to get him home safely!
We had a great afternoon on the beach! Usually we are luck to get a handful to a double-handful of sea glass...this trip we almost filled a gal Ziploc bag!
100% of this glass we collected off a beach over the past few years...this was by far our best outing! We added almost 3" in the jar this trip! And all the shells! The sea glass jar is 9" tall and 12" wide...and now getting heavy! The shell jar is 8" wide and 13" tall!
