What’s the wildest piece of garbage you’ve found on a beach? Some sea glass? Message in a bottle? Maybe something weirder?
How about a wooden pulley from an 1800’s sailing ship, a bomb drag, or a two and a half million year old mammoth tooth? Retired plumber and veteran-beachcomber John Anderson has all three of those things, and much more, in his one-of-a-kind beachcombing museum. Located on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State, Anderson shows off all 40-plus-years of his collection in what was once his plumbing workshop.
While this museum is incredibly cool, and Anderson certainly seems proud of it, it still seems likely that he would prefer to have found none of it whatsoever, because if this museum tells us anything, it’s really that we don’t treat our ocean as well as we should be.
