We went to the beach today. My favorite place is at the end of the earth, Sunset Beach, Cape May, NJ. There is an old concrete ship (yes, they made a ship out of concrete in WWI) that, you guessed it, ran ashore and has been there ever since. Every year we go, the ship is smaller. I usually collect "cape may diamonds" that wash up from the Delaware River. The Concrete ship apparently makes the little bits of quartz wash up just in that spot. I usually collect the 'diamonds' polish them for 3 weeks and make jewelry out of them.
