8/28/09 sunset over the Bering Sea in Bristol Bay, Port Heiden. High tide is incredible to watch, the strength of the rip current is unbelievable
8/29/09 Up at 5:00am to head to the beach to search for treasures left behind by the tide. To our disappointment the sun didn't rise until 6:30, a sign the days are getting shorter. It still amazes me how empty the beaches are, when everything is so beautiful, clean and untouched. Miles and miles of coastline to share with only the wildlife.
Tossed, carried, pushed, and polished. Glass floats, a beachcomber’s most treasured find, are still thrown upon West Coast beaches after their long journeys across the sea. Port Heiden happens to be a hot spot for finding them. After 2 hours of walking the beach with no luck, we walked around the bend and like an easter egg hunt started finding them buried in the sand on the bank.
