Tangier - Being from a beach town in the U.S., my wife and I would often walk the sandy shore looking for “sea glass.” Sea glass is glass that has been discarded into the sea, and after years of washing ashore and being swept back out again, it becomes smooth and beautiful, much like a gemstone. It is only natural that when we came to live in Morocco that we would seek out the pristine beaches, walk the unspoiled shores and look for sea glass. As we continued our quest here, we were not disappointed.
