The Bar, Bar Harbor, Maine; November 17, 2011 (Beachcombing series No.55)

The day was overcast and damp, about 42ºF with a brisk offshore wind out of the north. Occasional shafts of sunlight would break through and shimmer briefly on the wet stones. The gulls, my winter companions, weren't as raucous as usual, but creaky, like old doors.

Waved Whelk (Buccinum undatum), Green Crab (Carcinus maenas), Northern Rock Barnacle (Balanus balanoides), fishing rope, Blue Mussel (Mytilus edulis), bird bone, driftwood, sea glass, feather, Soft-shell Clam (Mya arenaria), pottery, Dog Whelk (Nucella lapillus), Green Sea Urchin (Strongylocentrotus drobachiensis), sea coal, metal widget, schist beach stone.
