Yesterday I went to the beach. It was hot out, but the water was cold, but I got used to it over time, and eventually I was going fully underwater.
Now, if you’ve been following my blog for its entire existence (actually, I don’t think anyone followed me from that point), you would know from my posts from last summer that my favourite thing to do at the beach is look for beach treasures. And I’m happy to announce that I found some yesterday.
This was my first find of the day. Wow! It is a bottle (obviously), with a height of seven and a half inches and a diameter at its base of two inches. There’s no writing on the sides, but on the bottom it reads “J L & Co L D C 1797”. It doesn’t seem terribly old, but it’s still cool.
This one does seem older. It reads “WELCH’S” on the front and the back. It is five inches tall, and has a diameter at its base of two inches. It’s nicely worn, and I’m happy to welcome it to my collection 🙂
I really don’t need more bottle bottoms, especially ones that have a jagged part of the bottle on it, but I kept this, for a reason. It reads “THIS BOTTLE NOT TO BE SOLD”, which itself is not really impressive; I see that all the time. The reason for which I kept it, though, is that in the center, one can read the word “BOTTLE” again, like it was double-struck when it was made.
This was just so ridiculously large, I had to keep it. I suppose it is the bottom of a pickle jar or something. It has an odd character on it, like a T and an F put together.
Oh, it’s so nice to be back to my game! This was my first time to the beach this summer, and I would say that it was a good day for my collection. 🙂
