Have a Coke and a Smile!


Look what my friend found, on the shores of Lake Erie! Jodie, from Lake Erie Beach Glass writes...
"This genuine piece of sea glass is CLEARLY from an old Coca~Cola bottle. The Ca writing is still very visible on this triangular piece. So, was this left over from a bottle of Coca~Cola that was shared between a young couple sprawled out on a beach blanket? It IS fun to imagine the journey a piece may have taken.
"Pieces of sea glass, beach glass, and sea pottery are so very unique in that they were once beautiful pieces of tableware, vases, figurines, liquor bottles, apothecary bottles and so much more! Due to the change of times, these pieces were thrown out as trash, carelessly dumped overboard from a vessel, or buried at the bottom of our lakes, sea, and oceans due to sunken ships. Each carries a story, a bit of history with it. Wether they were the left overs of a pirated and pillaged vessel, or the remains of the prohibition era and rum running days, they did make their way into the water where nature and time combined to deliver them to shore in the beautiful condition that we find them today!"
