Photo Journal: Beach Treasures at Magee Marsh

I made my way to Lake Erie again a couple weeks ago. My family and I walked the beach at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. It is known for it’s bird watching boasting over 300 different species recorded! Driving up to the beach we passed an eagle’s nest in the trees next to the road. Unfortunatley, no one was home. 

Some interesting beach art.

The beach was peaceful with a consistant, cool breeze. The sand was soft at first. As the tide came in it brought millions of tiny shells and other treasures. It was quite pokey to walk on. We found some “lucky stones”. They look like small, white pebbles with markings resembling either “L” or “J”. They are actually the ear bone of a freshwater drum fish or more commonly known as a sheephead. Fisherman will keep one in their pocket for good luck and others have adopted it into their own collections. I love beach treasures!

Until next time,

“Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate.”

The inside of a shell, looks like a planet.

The gulls take flight.

The waves were splashing.

Driftwood….or art supplies?

So many treasures to find!

See what I mean!

    • It really does! I love it, it takes away all my calluses and leaves my feet so soft and smooth! It’s quite therapeutic!

  2. Beach combing used to be a favourite past time when I lived closer to the sea. Now I’m in London it’s a little trickier to get out to the coast, but I still like to do it every now and then.

    I love glass bottles. The beach I used to visit was at the end of the Thames estuary and the current brought all sorts of treasure from along the river and the bay. Old Victorian bottles were the top finds.

    • Old Victorian bottles would be a nice find! Sometimes I find some beach glass but no whole bottles yet. I have to get out to do it more too. I walk the shoreline of a lot of different lakes but its a treat to go to the actual ocean. I could spend all day looking for stuff!
