I spent last Monday morning beach-combing on the Thames foreshore in Wapping. It’s something I’ve been meaning to check out for ages and finally got around to it. Hooray!
I love water, and in the absence of the sea, the Thames is pretty good. There are even waves when boats go by.
It was hot and sunny, there was sand and stones and all kinds of random bits & bobs to investigate, plus a seagull to keep an eye on me.
Here’s the treasure i brought home, including square nails maybe from a boat, a cleat, some bits of worn ceramics including pipestems, bones of varying ages and sizes, a stone with a hole in, a ‘pebble’ made of London clay (Which i am trying and failing to track down for my work and so am rather obsessed with) and even a shell or two.Not sure what I’m going to do with them yet, but something will come to mind…
