I hope that my parents forgive me for showing this funny photo on the blog:
This is usually the position my mother has when walking on the beach… in search for amber! Which of course she didn’t find when the beach was covered in snow, but below you can see my parents’ beach treasures from two weeks ago! Impressive, eh?
My father says that they have never before found that many ambers (or pieces of amber?) in one go… The trick is to be patient, and search among the seaweed that has washed up on the beach.
My aunt and I looking for amber on the beach in May last year. Obviously you have to bend closer to the seaweed to see the amber… That day I actually found my first piece of amber ever (what I can recall at least).
