Port Townsend’s Glass Beach, WA

Happy Summer BeachBums!! The last beach stop on my trip was Port Townsend’s “Glass Beach” which I discovered when researching the area and came across this video.   He shows finding so many cool pieces that I just HAD to make this a stop.  This area, much like the first Glass Beach I visited on […]

Long Beach, Washington

Hello BeachBums! Long Beach is located on Long Beach Peninsula just over the border from Astoria Oregon – speaking of which; the Astoria Bridge (formally known as the Astoria-Megler Bridge) is CRAZY!  First off, I think it is the tallest bridge I’ve ever seen, secondly it has a wicked steep hill off the west side […]

Sea Glass Museum, Ft.Bragg

Hey all BeachBums! So before I left Ft.Bragg for northern beaches, I had two stops I wanted to make.  The first was at the Sea Glass Gallery and Museum which is south on the Hwy about 5 min.   The place is owned and operated by a grizzly curmudgeon of a man, Capt. Cass Forrington. […]

Pudding Beach, Ft.Bragg

life at the beach

Miami Beach, Florida

Hey BeachBums! Great for people watching, the beach is right beside a busy strip of art deco hotels, great sidewalk restaurant seating, and gift shops filled with souvenirs (mosaic flamingos, anyone?).  The beach is wide and white, the water vibrant shades of blue and bath-water warm.     Sun and Sand! Sandy

Beach Life Isn’t All Sun and Sand

Hey there BeachBums! Brace yourselves…. So apparently island life isn’t all white sand, warm water, a balmy breeze to keep one cool, and a margarita at hand to keep one cooler. I don’t remember how I came across it, but I was reading a Discovery article about Amelia Earhart. It seems there’s some evidence that she and […]
