David and Lin Sea GlassIt's always exciting to hike into a somewhat hard-to-get-to beach and see what is there.

The anticipation of finding something new (old is better) is stimulating, and even if it isn't sea glass, there are always other possible finds.

That's how it was when Lin and I trekked to Cemetery Beach near Port Angeles, Washington.

More about this below.

If you haven't already found us on Pinterest, check out our many photos about sea glass, beach crafts, driftwood, waves and more:

Cemetery Beach Photos

If you live in an area where there is industrial activity along the coast, you may find things like what Lin and I found at what we call Cemetery Beach.

This looks like an axle housing from a truck

Cemetery Beach is down a narrow, untended path that angles through thick forest just west of Port Angeles, Washington.

This coast has been the center of logging activities for over a century, and the logging companies and mills dumped their old machinery and building materials over the bluffs.

This served to impede the erosion of the bluffs somewhat.

cemetery beach finds beachcombing
Well, it's definitely not driftwood, but the old machinery has a beauty of its own.

This beach is known to a few as Cemetery Beach because it lies below the cemetery.

Because it is so far below and the bluff is covered with trees, you can't see the beach from above.

What would you call this piece if you were to take it home and hang it on your wall? LOL

To the northeast of this beach is Ediz Hook, a 3-mile-long sand spit that shelters the port of Port Angeles.

There have been sawmills and paper pulp mills at the base of Ediz Hook since 1902 until the present, and parts of machinery can be found there also.

I wanted to take this one home but Lin wouldn't let me. On second thought, I decided I wasn't ready to haul this 50-pound hunk of wheel and rim back up the overgrown cliff path anyway.

I took many more photos and will post some more in the future if you all think they're interesting enough. Then again, we've got even more photos of sea, etc.
