Avast! A little photo tour for ye land lubbers!
There has been a long and steady line of visitors walking from the parking lot at Agate Beach to a large object washed ashore about a half mile away.

The view isn’t bad out towards sea either! So – there ya have it, a little tour for you land lubbers!
