I love finding old bottles...
These are NOT antiques but nicely seaglass-weathered...
One of the neatest finds is what we think is the ribs and keel? of an old boat! Very old, perhaps 19th century.
I had utilized the shipwreck as a photo shoot prop before I realised what I was seeing! Looks like a spine! The huge heavy nails once attached cross beams, like the one holding the bottles. A lower hold deck? Note that I am guessing here....
A larger ship was rediscovered on Fire Island after the hurricane.

Then there's all this great driftwood!
I am restraining myself but...
Cool coffee table? The piece on the left?
And a pair of rusty jungle bells and striped angel-stockings knit fabric, for my winter-y dolls.
Amazing to find such a tiny bit of usefulness, isn't it?
Here's a little cutie captured at the edge of one of my landscape pics. I've never seen a squirrel this close to the dunes.
ALL the kitties came to visit. First night only mama Kitty came, next day the whole gang. I was so happy to see them.
They don't like the kibble I brought them though!? I know...they are waiting for their Nathan's hotdogs, who knew feral cats could be so spoiled and finicky?
No mockingbirds yet, and no flock of spotted sparrows. I am enticing then with seeds and dried berries..and hopeful.
[I fed the kibble to the gulls and crows at the beach...]
