And it is rich in a clear quarts rock that when tumbled and buffed and cut brilliantly, like a diamond, looks just like the real carbon diamonds, and is set in pretty silver or gold settings for rings, necklaces, and earrings sold in gift shops all over Cape May. My father bought me a necklace 15 years ago and it is still as pretty and shiny today.
I like to go and collect all the white rocks to use around the Beach Cottage. They are smooth and creamy white and some are really bright white.
It is also a really great place to watch the sun set, and to get some great pictures.
A few of the pieces of Beach glass that I found on one day,
In a nice shade of lavender and aqua, and white
And on the bottom right a few Cape May diamonds.
The sun sets here are lovely and a lot of people come to watch it go down.
I saw it in 1985 and there was much more of the ship visible then, than there is visible now.

Who would have thought a concrete ship would float, but they did!
There were 24 concrete ships in the Flotilla in 1918
But for now I will just enjoy adorning my little cottage with the wonders from the sea!
