We had some super cold weather in mid October, but that didn't stop me from going to Scusset to beach comb at low tide. It was so nice out but boy did I regret not wearing my winter coat and gloves. My jean jacket wasn't cutting it at all and I got so chilled it lasted all day.
I was also shocked to see the entire beach stripped of rocks. I've never seen it that sandy. We'd had a couple of rain storms the week before, which must've swept everything back into the bay.
Lots of seagulls and an icy cold wind that would not quit.
There was not going to be any glass to be had this day, but I walked to the breakwater and back anyway. At least I got some nice pieces of driftwood.
But then I spied this beauty on the sand. It would be my only piece but it is pretty high quality.
The seaweed was all clumped up in big piles. I've never seen that before either.
Even on top of one of the jetties.
Have I mentioned how cold and windy it was? Can't tell by these pics but I was walking into the wind to get back to the parking lot and my face was frozen by the time I got to the car.
I guess if Scusset's going to be that clean for awhile, I should probably try to hit up my secret spot soon. But the beach is always changing and evolving, so hopefully the sand will wash back to sea to reveal the rocks and glass.
