North Beach
by: Anonymous

Some of you know where N.Beach is already. Standing at the boat ramp, facing the water, turn left and just walk.

The tide doesn't have to be out far at all. If you walk to the right of the boat ramp you will see Ft. Worden and it's walking distance. Not far at all really.

Also all of the beaches in Port Townsend have glass. And each beach is different. Some have round pieces, some are flat. Some are tiny some are quite large. Some are not as polished (frosted) and some are.

Watch the parking signs as there is very little free parking in town. I live right on the beach downtown and my apt. building has no parking for tenants.

You will likely get a ticket if you stay too long in a spot. But it's a volunteer who gives tickets and they don't always work. And tickets are $15. Most spots are 2 hrs though there are some 4 hr spots.

The lot by the skateboard park on Monroe St. has many free spots. And the beach is no more than a block away. There you go. That's all I really want to reveal as this is my hometown, for 6 generations now.

How do you get to North Beach

I was excited to hear that there is Sea Glass in Washington! We just moved up here a few months ago and I have not had the opportunity yet to do much glassin. If I go over to Port Townsend, how do I get to North Beach please?

I did take a drive to where the ferry takes off from the Lummi Reservation to Lummi Island... and I found a small piece of cobalt blue not 5 minutes after I stepped out on the beach... It's not totally what I would call "finished".. but it made me happy anyway.

North Beach?
by: Nance

Hi There! I live on Whidbey Island and have been collecting sea glass for several years now - My In-Laws live in Pt. Ludlow and we recently went in search of North Beach, as I've heard it's a great place to find glass.

How far up do you need to go to find larger glass? I found a lot of beautiful 'little' gems, but nothing much bigger than a kernel of corn-

We parked at the lot north of Ft. Worden (not sure what it was called - a small park with covered picnic area, restrooms and beach access) and hiked about a mile to the North - Is there a parking area further up? Or do you just have to hike a little (or a lot!) further! I'd like to try again! :)

OMG!! All the blue glass, I love the red piece, but blue still remains my favorite.
