|Glass ball 'in situ' - the ultimate beachcombing find|
This year on Chirikof because of the stashed gear so far away from our camp at the North lake we had to make due without a lot of camp necessities. But as Jack W put it, 'if you look for it - the beach will provide it'. In this way we found a toothbrush for Sam and Catherine, I found a funnel for making coffee, buckets and we even made a spatula from a beach buoy. Truly - the beach did provide.
I was a little surprised by the lack of modern beach debris. I was expecting Japanese tsunami debris and we really did not see any that I could identify as such. The beaches were actually quite clean.
