We went searching for sea pottery a few days ago.
This is one of our very enjoyable but unusual hobbies 😂 Hey, it’s free, gets us out of the house, is interesting, and easy to pause for when seizures hit!
It was -3c when we went, and the beach was covered in frozen salt water! The quicksand was also frozen, which meant we could travel much further out, and as a result we found some truly beautiful pieces…this was easily our most successful trip!
If you don’t want to see boring photos of old pottery, stop here 😉
These two pieces, although very dull to look at, we’re cool because we could face date them! They were dated around 1880-1936, as we were able to identify the back stamps.
And here are some of my favourites!
The huge brown circle is a ‘kick up’, the base of a very old bottle. This one is actually green (you can see when light shines at it) and must have been part of a giant bottle!
The entire collection from that day’s outing
And look at all this ice!! I’ve never seen this in all the years I’ve lived here!
