I love to walk along a rocky coast. I love to listen to the waves crashing and smell the sea air. And even though I don't bring my own ziplock baggie, I confess that I too enjoy looking for sea glass. Who doesn't?
This year, I decided to concentrate on looking for sea pottery -- bits of plates and cups that have been thrown around the ocean and washed ashore.
Henry has found many pieces of sea pottery in this very Maine spot -- some very old and very large. We searched and searched but only found one small piece of pottery with green flowers on one side.
Josie found some small sea glass, though:

I like this photo because of the expression on Georgia's face in the left hand side. She's saying "REALLY?!? You found something else when I haven't found a thing, yet? REALLY?"
We moved on to another cove and did some more walking (I mean searching!).
The scenery is gorgeous, is it not?
We couldn't stay too long. We wanted to stop off at a zipline course we saw about 40 minutes from my parents' house and we needed to allow enough time to play there. Right before we left, we had Elizabeth take our family photo by the water:
Good-bye, Maine. We'll see you soon.
