Treasures from under the pier

treasures from the burnt pier

I went for a walk along the beach last week and found these treasures under the burnt down pier. My favourites are the paper tokens, which my friend Hannah found and gave to me as she knew my need was greater than hers! I find it hard to believe that two weeks after the fire these fragile paper tickets are still washing up on the beach. The other things in the photo include some molten metal, a bit of a leather belt, a chip fork, some twisted metal, lumps of charcoal and two screws from the pier.

I absolutely l-o-v-e your pier finds collection. It is so sad yet so beautiful. You must keep it forever, and when you are an old lady you will be able to bring it out and tell stories of old w-s-m to tomorrows young.
