The Journey of Beach Glass
Perhaps my life began as a wine bottle that was purchased to mark the first anniversary of a loving couple. They toasted to many more years of adventures with one another and planned their future family; kids, dogs, and anniversary celebrations.
A Platter for Elegant Dinners
Maybe I was a platter that graced an elegant dinner party, a dinner party that took months to plan to every detail from color palette to dessert menu, flowers, and guest list.
A Cherished Piggy Bank
It is possible that I was a child’s cherished piggy bank that the child eventually outgrew.
Daily Use as a Glass Tea Cup
Could it be that I was a glass tea cup that had been used daily until I was deemed unusable; not because I wasn’t cherished any longer but because I was so loved and used that I was no longer able to hold the treat I was designed to carry.
The Milkman’s Delivery
I may have been a milk bottle delivered to you by your milkman on his Tuesday delivery; he always came before nine in the morning and tapped lightly on your door alerting you to my arrival.
I have traveled hundreds of nautical miles over several decades. My journey has taken me through the roughest of storms with raging waves as tall as mountains and topped with white caps that glisten in the moonlight.
The Beauty of Crystal Clear Waters
I have seen oceans that appear glass-like with the smoothest surface and crystal-clear water. I have gathered at the surface and basked in the rays of the glorious sun. Sun so pure and hot that I barely remain cool on my underside.
Diving into Aquatic Majesty
I have dived deep into the darks of the ocean and been surrounded by aquatic life so stunningly beautiful and majestic. I have been tossed in the air with such force from the mere magnificent power of the oceans yet brought back down into the ocean in a delicate manner.
My travels take me to my landing place. I am worn, a bit dull but in a bright way, I am a mere size of the object I began my journey as. I have reached the shore. I feel the grains of sand polishing me in a sort of way preparing me for the treasure I will some day become. The waves bring me in and out as the hours pass. Each timely push of the ocean’s strength brings me higher in. I am eventually nestled in a crevice just out of the ocean’s reach.
Transformation into Beach Glass
The sun dries me and gives a bit of sparkle to my now lightly sanded finish. I glisten. I am ready to be discovered. I am now beach glass. A treasure to many.
One Man’s Trash, Another Man’s Treasure
There is so much to be discovered on the island of Maui. Restaurants, shopping, hiking, surfing, and tours to name a few. We encourage you to simply walk along the beach as often as you can while you’re here.
