WW: Potsherd on the beach

(Because the North Coast has only been densely populated for the past two centuries, we have nothing like the glorious mudlarking they get in the UK. [On the other hand, we also don't need a licence to do it.] Generally, unless you stumble on something pre-contact, you're looking at a 20th century Euro-American artefact. Maybe 19th; very rarely 18th. The above probably falls in the first two categories. I still wonder how it comes to be there, and where in the bay it was lying before the tide fetched it up.)

Appearing also on My Corner of the World.


  1. Your potsherd is so intriguing!
    Your blog is perfect to link to All Seasons )link is open from Sunday-Wednesday Texas time). It goes beyond nature, but is meant as the experience in the season, such as specific and daily events.It's called "All Seasons". My url is (all one word) the jesh studio (dot) wordpress (dot) com. Link is open from Sunday - Wednesday.Hope to see you there! Jesh

  2. Wow! What an unusual find! It does make you wonder a lot of things when you see something so displaced.

    It's so great to see your link at 'My Corner of the World' this week!

  3. A find like your pottery shard makes you think about the history of the place.
