A Spectacular Find

Hello friends, Save the Harbor's photographer/videographer Mike Murowchick here again! On Saturday, October 27th, over 400 people registered to join us on our final cruise to Spectacle Island of the season. This is the 3rd installment of a four-part series of short interviews aimed at capturing the many faces and stories of Spectacle Island. Parts 1 and 2 can be found here and here.

In the afternoon, the tides finally began to recede, exposing the beach and countless pieces of sea glass and other historic artifacts. Dozens of eager treasure hunters flocked to the beach to see what they could uncover. Common finds usually include sea glass of all colors, pottery, and fine china, and rarer items include marbles. However, today we found something none of us had ever found here before. At first we thought it might be a porcelain ventriloquist doll's head, but upon further investigation we learned it was actually a top piece of a circus cane, long-detached from its wooden shaft.

To see what it looks like, check out the video!
