Hunt for Treasures on the Beach

Check the tide times here and head to the wide expanse of beach to hunt for washed up frosted gems of sea-glass, search the rockpools for aquatic life. If you miss the low tide why not hunt the pebbles on the beach for sparkly crystalized ‘magic stones’ – usually found in larger pebbles with indents in them, or the Fairey stones (also known as hag stones) – pebbles with a hole through them that were believed to protect against nightmares.
