The Treasures of Winter Tides

Posted by E.G.D. on January 15, 2018

pins11Hello, beachgoers!  We’ve mentioned it before, but I’ve decided to bring it up again:  the dead of winter is a fantastic time for beachcombing.  I was perusing the internet today, and it seemed like every time I stumbled upon articles about the best beaches to visit in January and February, the writers of those articles were sending beachgoers to warmer climes either on/near the equator or in the southern hemisphere (where it happens to be summer).  It might seem weird for some, but I quite like having at least a couple of seasons in my year, and I’ve never thought it was less fun to visit a beach in the winter than to visit a beach in the summer.  Therefore, I was inspired to make a concerted effort, and I found a few great articles about finding treasures on the beach when/where it’s cold outside.  I’ve decided to share my finds with the Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches world!

The first article is from NCCoast.com (a website about the North Carolina Coast):

The Winter Beach – Shelling on the NC Coast

The article has fantastic advice about the best times to hit the beach, as well as advice about responsible shell collecting.

The second article is from CaptivaSanibel.com:

Best time for shelling on the islands comes during winter, extreme tides

I know the title seems to say it all, but the article is fantastic, and it quotes a true expert on the subject.

The third article is from chesapeakefamily.com:

Winter Beachcombing in Maryland

This article is a wealth of family daytrip advice that includes a list of great Maryland beaches to hit on cold winter days!

Don’t let the title of this last one from theislandermagazine.com fool you!  It talks about beachcombing Galveston island in all of the cold months:

Fall Beachcombing

What I quite like about this particular article is that it covers most all of my favorite treasures, including sea beans, shells, shark teeth, and sea glass.

I hope that gives everyone hiding from the cold indoors some food for thought.  Sometimes walking in a winter wonderland means day-tripping to your nearest beach.

Jake and Carla’s Texas Treasure Trove

Posted by E.G.D. on July 8, 2016

Today’s guest post, including the beautiful beach treasure photographs, is courtesy of Jake and Carla W.

Hi. I’m Jake and my treasure hunting partner is my wife Carla. This is my first post. The first pics are from 7/5/16, and the rest are from the last 2 to 3 months. We live south of Houston in Brazoria county. We treasure hunt in 3 Texas counties: Galveston, Brazoria, and Matagorda.

The last pics we think might be a partial megalodon tooth! I’ve emailed pics to a professor, but we haven’t heard back. Any input on that from the readers of Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches would be appreciated.

As you can see we like to go to the beach. Carla says its the only place we get along (LOL!). Anyway, enjoy the photos and happy hunting.  -Jake and Carla.

About the Authors: “Jake and I are both in our 40’s and have been together for a little over three years. We love camping, fishing and shell seeking. We seem to have created an unspoken deal where he teaches me how to catch really big fish and I try to teach him the patience and tenacity needed to find shark teeth. I’m more into shells and driftwood, he’s searching for antique bottles and the occasional pirate treasure chest. To an outsider, we must seem odd, as we can go for hours with very little conversation and be content being with one another and our passions. But it works for us.” ~Carla
