Beach lovers especially love the Coastal Fall look with teal pumpkins. What one may not realize is that the teal pumpkin has taken on a new meaning in recent years. In 2012 Becky Basalone, the director of a local food allergy support group, came up with the idea to paint a pumpkin teal.

Every “off-season” (from mid-October until Memorial Day) lucky beachcombers are finding treasures strategically hidden among the dunes and debris on a seven-mile stretch of public beach. These treasures are secretly hidden, but with the hope that they will be found.  These unique beach gifts are artisan glass floats.   What is a glass float?
