South of Welshpool Wharf, Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada; June 10, 2012 (Campobello Beachcombing series No.5)
A grand old hotel once stood on this bluff, and very likely dumped its trash onto the beach. New trash is depressing, but old dumps are paradise for beachcombers and archaeologists.
Driftwood, sea glass, granite and schist beach stones, Blue Mussel (Mytilus edulis), industrial ceramic cover, possibly from the Bryant Electric Co. (1888-present), porcelain, bird bones, seafood industry label, lobster-claw band, Common Periwinkle (Littorina littorea), soda can pull tab, and plastic lighter.
