On Small Beaches

Most of the waterfront property around the Puget Sound is privately owned. However, there are dozens of small beaches with public access, often with few or no people despite the populated area. The beaches vary - some with an abundance of logs and weathered wood, some with interesting varieties of seaweed, some with shells becoming sand, some with just a great view, and some with all of the above. Each beach offers a multitude of miniature natural randomly chaotic 'still lifes', whether it be seaweed, shell or log art.
