Beachcombing Volume 32: September/October 2022


Volume 32: September/October 2022

Our cover story features a trip to hunt for fishing floats in the Alaskan wilderness. We'll be celebrating National Fossil Day in October so we have articles from England, Oregon, and Florida about hunting for beach fossils. We've also got a story about a sea shell glamping adventure, a beach-finds string-light craft, and the winners of our sea shell photo contest. Add in some sea glass colors, nautical poetry, and summer cottages — and there's something for everyone!
