Quick stop at Crow Farm to pick up some beach plum jelly. I love that stuff. In the 70s, my dad used to pick the beach plums around our cottage at Spring Hill Beach for jelly. I can't recall if he made it or gave them to someone to make for us.
Crow Farm has been around for 100 years and they still provide seasonal fresh produce, pies, jellies, etc. Russell & I went to school with the current generation that's running the farm. It's a real Sandwich institution.
The pull to hunt for Sandwich Glass, despite high tide, was too much so I went to my spot to see what I could find. See those two sticks out there? That's the top of a now-submerged dock. That's how high the water level was.
SUCCESS! Red! Whoo hoo!
And another, white with red.
Of course had to stop for the obligatory Boardwalk pictures.
Normally I would never venture out when the water's this high (unless my intent is to jump into the water, which was very tempting on this warm day) but the distance from the parking lot to the bridge part is pretty short so I braved it.
The water was crystal clear
Since I was in the area, I decided to try and find the old abandoned railway car. I'd never heard of, or seen this, in all the years I lived there the first time. No idea what the history of it is. As I stood there shooting pics, I could hear the train whistle headed my way. I was stoked!
Here she comes!
The engineer waved to me.
Have always loved the sound of a train.
My scores for the day
The beach finds. Trying so hard to stop collecting pretty rocks and shells but they're so pretty.
Slag which I love finding as much as the shattered glass pieces
The crown jewels of that day's finds. 3 red/pink, a purple...greens and blues. I was a happy camper!
