Walking at McCurdy Sea Glass Beach?
by Pete Suchon
Hi- The wife and I are planning a trip to McCurdy beach in October and I was wondering what kind of beach it is.
I have arthritis in all the joints below the waist and a beach full of small boulders would not be a fun walk for me.
Any information about what I can expect would be greatly appreciated.
__________________Hi Pete and Wife,
The beach usually is manageable.
However, the tidal currents do move the sand around, so there sometimes there is more than others.
At times, there are stretches where it is almost all round rocks, so it just depends on what the beach is like that certain day.
Sometimes there is sand pretty much all the way.
You must go when the tide is going out.
After the tide turns, you can wait an hour before starting back.
If you start the hike at low tide you will get caught and be climbing over rocks at the high tide line on the way back.
I have problems with my musculoskeletal system and was really burnt out after doing the hike out to the point and back while bending over much of the time.
So what I do now if I planning to go to the point or beyond is not bend over much until I'm there. Then before my back gets to hurting too much I start back.
You don't need to go all the way to find a lot of glass...but if you can, it's better!
