The sea glass hunting around the Welshpool wharf is some of the best I have ever seen. There wasn't a lot right next to the pier, but to the northwest the beach was speckled with beautifully worn glass.
According to the owner of our inn, a grand old hotel once stood on this bluff, and it very likely dumped its trash onto the beach. New trash is depressing, but old dumps are fantastic places for beachcombers (and archaeologists). You can see I brought back quite a haul!
There was a crow somewhere on the wharf making an awful racket, so after a while I pulled out my telephoto to see if I could spot him and see what had his panties in such a twist, and this popped into view:
and the lights of Eastport came on over the water.
What a lovely day.
I wasn't completely happy with the colors in my first shot. What do you think - first or second try?
