maeve has been telling me for weeks that we need to take a field trip to dead horse bay, a little corner of brooklyn i've never known or heard about. sunday was finally the day!
we had the luxury of driving there, since she has a car. (it is sooo great to not have to take the subway lemme tell ya.) we parked across the street at a creepy abandoned military base, then walked through a little beachy nature trail.
and just so you know, this post is cobbled together with pictures from *FOUR* different cameras. zach's, matt's iphone, my point & shoot, & matt's canon. i never realized it, but matt's little iphone can take some decent pictures! (see above.)
where the trail opens up to the bay-
if it reminds you a little bit of a garbage dump, that's because it was. it's been both a horse rendering plant and a landfill, and is still littered with old glass from the 1930's... which is of course what we were there to collect...
and here we have the score of the day that i'm most proud of- the tiniest bottle you've ever seen!
some of sunday's haul back at home, freshly bleached and boiled.
maeve suggested i make that teeny bottle into a little necklace, and i think that's exactly what i'll do :)
more pics & outfit deets to come!
