from the series Beachcoming

Rusted metal pin, bottle caps, beach china, sea glass, Northern Rock Barnacle (Balanus balanoides), driftwood, bone, action figure, Knotted Wrack (Ascophyllum nodosum), asphalt beach stone, schist beach stones, electrical fittings, oyster shell, mid-20th-century Coke-bottle base, lobster-claw band, plastic toy bit, eroded aluminum, Blue Mussel (Mytilus edulis), U.S. quarter (patinated), and binoculars. The round-bottom bottle fragment near center was most likely part of a turn-of-the-20th-century ginger ale bottle.

The Harbormaster's office sits on a small wooden dock next to the town pier. It's a little tricky to get down there, and you have to watch the tides carefully to make sure you can get back, but not a lot of people bother, so there's a lot to see. I found a whole lot of restaurant trash (lobster claw bands, lobster picks, bottle caps) and sea glass. The round bottle bottom (middle row) was a popular form in the late 1800s, so that's been in the water for a long time, even though it was broken pretty recently (very sharp edges). There's also an old Coke bottle (2nd row from the right) and a pair of binoculars (bet there was some swearing when those got dropped in the sea!).
