Island Treasure Hunt
Jekyll Island, Georgia
In the early 1990’s fishermen used glass floats on their nets. Occasionally the floats would break free and be washed ashore. With the switch to plastic floats in the 1950’s, the glass floats became a rare find and highly sought after.
Each year, January through February, the Jekyll Island Authority hosts an Island Treasures event. Artists are chosen from around the country to create one of a kind pieces, reminiscent of the glass floats once used on fishermen nets. Volunteers, called Beach Buddies hide floats daily for lucky beachcombers to find and keep. I know where I’ll be next January!

Cueva de los Cristales Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico
The Cave of the Giant Crystals in Naica, Mexico has the most amazing Selenite crystals ever found on earth. Due to the course of nature, soon it will be lost to us, if it hasn’t been already. Although I could still visit the area, I may have to move this to my “After” Bucket list.
