Area Beaches

at Big Creek.  Head to the beach during low tides and minus tides, especially whenthey come early in the morning.  You will have beat the other treasure hunters and as an extra bonus, the wind is often calmest in the morning.   Many interesting shells can also be found in tidepools and just underneath a layer of sand.
