The winter chill is still hanging on for dear life, but I was able to get out on a sunny, wind-less day for some beach combing at Scusset at low tide. I wore shorts but a jacket was definitely required.
As soon as I saw all this seaweed I knew I wasn't going to find any glass. I certainly wasn't going to look under it.
I do like going out on the sand bars though. If it had been warmer, I would've taken off my shoes.
This shell bit would have been used to make beads or as currency by the Native Americans that lived here. It's called wampum. You can read about it HERE.
This was the only decent piece of glass I found. I got about 4 tiny chips, one a bit bigger than the chips and this one.
While I was there, I watched this tug tow that barge from way out in the Bay. They were obviously going to go through the Canal.
It was a nice day for a walk, even if I didn't score much in the way of glass.
On the way back to the parking lot, I spied this really cool little house someone built out of the hollow twiggy things that were washed up on the beach above the tide line. I've never known what they were called but they are some kind of reed....probably grows in the marshes. You see them all over our beaches from time to time.
It was very clever and took a lot of work.
One last look at the barge coming in.
It was only 9:45 and I just didn't want to go home yet and waste the sunny day inside. Since I was near the bridge, I decided to check out something on my Local Bucket List....
