Once upon a time, glass balls were easy picking
In response to John Owen's article, "Tasty cod in Copalis but no glass balls," I must contradict the author.
I do know of someone who has picked up a glass ball.
My grandparents were early residents of Ocean Shores. My grandpa used to take long walks on the beach each morning, combing the sands for any interesting items.
I am very pleased to say that I have a whole shelf of various sizes of wave-worn, green glass balls that he found.
He said the picking was especially good after a storm!
