                                    February 22
Today was an excellent day! I decided to go kayaking, and was dropped off
at the Pt. Fosdick Boat launch at 1 pm. I took my time and paddled through
Wollochet Bay. Making my way into an inlet at the tail end of the bay at
around 2:45, I decided to have a look around for some old bottles. Only five
days before had I finished up the Stroh Dig, and I was on the hunt for a new
site. Looking from my kayak to the shore, I noticed a round object about
midway down the small muddy beach. I made my way over to the object,
expecting to find just a rock, when to my surprise it turned out to be a jar! I
looked around this area, which is completely hidden from view and away
from any houses, and was pleased to see pieces of glass all through this
small portion of the beach. I wasted no time in finding a rocky place to land.
After getting off of the kayak, I had to make my way through the trees to the
top of this area (I couldn’t get my feet muddy, as I didn’t have on boots).
Looking down on the area, I surveyed what looks to me like a dumpsite of
1920- late 30’s. I made my way down onto the site. There were bits of glass,
plates, and metal lying here and there. The weird thing is that some items are
still lying freely on top, as if they had been thrown there yesterday. The area
was not disturbed, and I’m positive that nobody has been there before me.
Because I didn’t have any digging supplies with me, or a camera to
photograph it, I used the bottom of a jar just to sift through the mud. The site
is deep for being on a beach, as I dug down 6 inches and was still finding
lots of glass. I was able to get 7 intact bottles in a mere 20 minutes of
surveying the area. These bottles included 1 non-screw juice jar, 1
mentholatum jar, 1 Musterole jar, 1 wine bottle with embossed leaves and
grapes, 1 cork top condiment jar, 1 embossed Williams Horseradish jar, and
1 tiny perfume which was so small that I forgot to put it into the kayak
(hopefully the tide doesn’t carry it away). This is a VERY challenging area,
as it is fairly muddy. Also, these bottles will definitely be the hardest ever to
clean, because they have quite a bit of rust staining and barnacles. However,
give it some time and they will be good as new. I’m looking forward to
getting back to the spot, and next time I’ll get dropped off at a nearby
driveway and walk through the woods to the area. It will be a quick dig due
to its size, but it looks to hold some great stuff.
                                February 27
       When I said that it would be a quick dig, I overestimated! After
arriving at the spot at 3 PM, I soon realized that the bottles were for the most
part broken and surface material. In 45 minutes, I had come up with only a
few pieces of blue china, a decorated wine bottle (barnacle encrusted, of
course), and some common bottles. The site really wasn’t showing much
age. I decided that I might as well have a look around the rest of the bay. I
walked though the thick mud to the other side (The tide was out, luckily). As
I walked along the beach, I came across a piece of a bottle! Picking it up, I
could tell immediately that it was a piece of an old medicine bottle, probably
1900 era. I continued to walk towards the small bridge that crosses
Artondale creek. I spotted out of the corner of my eye something shining. I
pulled it out of the sand, only to discover that it was a piece of a blown
double collared bottle (late 1800’s). Seeing that bottles were in the mud
along the shore, I remembered that I had been told about the original road
that leads into Cromwell being next to the shore, and not where it is now. I
walked into the woods, and confirmed this information when I saw the
clearing running straight through the woods along the bay. Trying to figure
out why the bottles were there, I came up with a few ideas:
Option A- just as people throw their trash into ditches along the road, the
people who originally traveled this road would have just chucked the stuff
out into the bay.
Option B- The bottles were used by Indians in the area- The Wollochet Bay
Reservation was discontinued in 1913, and these bottles are slightly before
that time.
Option C- The bottles came from one of the early settlements in the area-
These include cabins that were rented by the McLaughlin’s, the Wollochet
School, the Maloney’s, the Artondale Methodist Church (Now the grange),
or a few other groups.
        I would say that it’s probably a combination of Option A and C. There
were certainly enough groups in the area to have plenty of bottles to throw
away. I did a quick scan for about 20 minutes more before I had to go. I
found a 19-teens JR Watkins Jar (I’ve never found a Watkins jar before, just
bottles). I also located a broken blob top, and a great Sanford’s inkbottle that
dates to late 1800’s. Needless to say, it’s the oldest inkbottle I’ve ever
found! On my way out, I spotted something white. I pulled it out of the sand
and discovered that it was an early white bottle with an ground lip that says
“Crème Simon.” I did a little research on it, and in 1970 the bottle was
considered rare and sold for $3.50. Since that time, milk glass (white glass)
bottles have exploded in price. A general estimate would be at least $20.00
today, probably more. I’m excited to get back to the area. I’ll be relying
almost 100% on scanning the ground and a probe the next time I go. By
pressing the probe into the soft ground, I’ll be able to hear for the ping of
glass that had been thrown into the bay and buried by silt over a century ago.
It’s really fun digging, because everything that is found has so much age.
Even if much doesn’t turn up, the things that do are well worth the time it
takes. The only tricky thing with this site is that I can only access it when the
tide is low. I can’t get to the side of the bay that I need to get to without
crossing across the bay. The area is just so isolated, which is probably why,
even though the items are on the surface, they haven’t been discovered. It’s
simply that nobody ever can get back there unless they really give it some
effort. However, if it’s a good day, I have the option of using a kayak to get
to the area. Now THAT would be extreme bottle digging.


This picture is actually of
the area that I had
originally found. The
bottles were strewn along
the top of the beach in
this picture. The main
part of the bay is in the
top left portion of the
picture. The area with the
really old bottles is the
beach on the other side of the bay (top left of the picture). I can’t wait to get
some photos and video of that area!
                                February 29




What a day! I was dropped off at Wollochet Creek (Bottom Right of
Picture). Normally I’m dropped off at the grange, but I wouldn’t be able to
cross the bay today because the tide was too high. As I made my way to the
spot that I found on Friday (#3), I came across two more spots! I approached
spot #1, and saw numerous bottles sticking out of the ground. I used a hand
rake to uncover the sea growth over the bottles, and was surprised by the
age. Some of the bottles had applied lips! I dated this site from 1890-1920.
                                                 There were some great
                                                 bottles in the spot. I was able
                                                 to get 1 whole turn mold
                                                 green wine bottle with an
                                                 applied lip. I also grabbed 3
                                                 broken medicine tops, each
                                                 applied, because I’ll be using
                                                 them in a report. The picture
                                                 to the left is of this spot. The
                                                 bottles are mainly in the
                                                 bottom left portion of the
                                                 picture, and are about 80%
                                                 buried.
                                                   I didn’t have too much
                                                   time to dig around, as I
                                                   wanted to get to spot #3.
                                                   About 25 feet later, I hit
                                                   spot #2. Shown in the
                                                   picture is the left part of
                                                   spot #2. The picture
                                                   shows what is left of an
                                                   old boat ramp. The ramp
                                                   leads up into the woods.
                                                   On both sides of the old
                                                   ramp are lots of bottles!

                                                   Shown in this picture is a
                                                   close-up of the some of
                                                   the bottles that can be
                                                   found at this site. The age
                                                   is not super old, but old
                                                   enough for me! I’d date it
                                                   1915-1940. Definitely a
                                                   bigger array of bottles,
                                                   and they are quite
                                                   scattered. There’s also a
                                                   drop-off between the
                                                   beach and the woods, and
                                                   these bottles could have
come from an old home/homes rather than from the boat dock. I did get 3
good bottles from this site in 20 minutes of scanning, including a medicine
bottle, a cork top glue bottle, and an embossed milk bottle reading “Sanitary
Farm Dairies, St. Paul, Minn.” I’m excited to get back to this site as well.
Finally, I moved on to the
area that I had found on
Friday with no interruptions.
When I arrived there, I was
able to survey it better and
am now assured that this was
a dumpsite from a small
drop-off that separates the
woods from the beach. The
dumpsite is in the bottom left
of this pic. Lying on the drop off was a cork top medicine bottle. I also was
able to probe the beach, and was happy to feel lots of bottles/plates about 3
inches below the tough surface. I found a milk glass mentholam jar, along
with a few porcelain caps. I didn’t find many intact things with super old age
today, but hopefully that will change. When it was time to go, I phoned
home and took off from the grange. It was a good day, and I was able to get
some great things and future spots!
                                    March 2
Didn’t go digging today, but I did get some research on the area which helps
in understanding why the bottles are where they are. I got an old map from
the light company planning books, and it shows six structures (Appears like
a barn and 5 houses) near spot #3. There are also two more structures near
spot #2. The map is from the 30’s, so this would make sense, as spot #2 has
bottles in that time period. Nothing is around spot #1, which also makes
sense, because the bottles there are too old to be from the 30’s. The houses
on the map that are near spot #3 must be old, because the bottles being found
definitely are about 20 years before the 30’s. Also, I discovered who owns
the beaches in this area. Turns out the Peninsula Parks and Recreation owns
this land. Therefore, it’s public property. This is great news, because I won’t
have to deal with a homeowner who may be a stickler when it comes to
bottle digging. I may just call Peninsula Parks and Recreation and tell them
that I found some trash on their beach, and would like to volunteer to clean it
up…you know, for the environment and all.

                                    March 6
       Since the area is park property, I was dropped off at the grange and
went along a trail to the beach (I hadn’t before because I thought the trail
was privately owned). After arriving at the beach, I went to the spot with the
newest stuff that happens to be the area that is easiest to find stuff in (#2). I
didn’t bring a probe, but relied on a small hand rake to look through the
weeds along the shore. Within 20 minutes I had found three or four bottles,
being common, but not in my collection. They consisted of a tall brown
screw top jar (small, like alka-seltzer), a short stubby clear container with
screw top, a W. T. Co milk glass jar (not sure of the rarity, but I sure don’t
have one), and my first ever coca cola bottle. You’d think that by now I
would have found a coca cola bottle, being that there were millions made,
but I never happened to until now. It had raised lettering saying COCA-
COLA, and the bottom says TACOMA, WA. That’s better, because I enjoy
finding bottles that were made in nearby glassworks. I decided to go attempt
to find some older stuff, and went to spot #1, which definitely has the oldest
but often hard to find items. After about 5 minutes of searching, I spotted the
bottom of a bottle poking about half an inch out of the sand. It looked to me
that it was a medicine, and probably broken for that matter, but when I
wiggles it out I was shocked at what I found. It was a beautiful salad
dressing bottle with an applied top and four sides, with two of the sides
displaying indented panels. I couldn’t believe it, because not only is it one of
the oldest bottles in my collection, but also it was in great shape. The bottle
is loaded with manganese (the stuff that turns glass purple when exposed to
ultra-violet rays), because the bottom of the bottle that had been sitting out
in the sun was completely purple, and the buried portion is still clear. When
I went to go wash it, I spotted a milk glass ponds jar, circa 19-teens. I set
these two aside and looked around for 20 minutes more, but to no avail this
time. I decided to make my way to spot #1. On my way, I stopped at the area
where I had found the coke bottle half an hour before. I moved to the top of
the beach, right where a small hillside meets the sand. The hill is covered
with ivy, and as I lifted the Ivy, I noticed some more bottles. I pulled out a
cool fruit jar lid, along with an old Johnson and Johnson cosmetic bottle
(30’s). I also found a Lysol bottle, which I was happy about because I had
sold my first ones that I had found last year when I was in the hobby for the
money (Thank goodness I got out of that phase!). Because it was getting
time to go, I went to spot #3, which is close to the road, but didn’t find
anything in the 10 minutes that I was there. I left where I had been dropped
off, carrying home my 10 new finds. The picture below shows all of my new
finds today on display.

                                    March 12
I rode my bike down to the end of Wollochet Bay today. After riding right
up onto the beach via a trail on park property, I immediately went to spot #2.
I normally start with this spot because I pretty much have a 100% chance of
finding something since it’s the largest area. I stayed in the area for about 45
minutes, and noticed that the junk was thrown down the embankment that
divides the beach with the forest. The base of the embankment was covered
in ivy, and when I lifted the ivy I noticed shards of glass, etc. 40 minutes of
poking and digging around turned me up with a fruit jar embossed: Kerr
“Self Sealing” Trademark Wide Mouth Mason. It’s pretty neat, actually. I
also pulled out a complete porcelain cup with handle (First whole cup I’ve
ever found with a handle still intact), a porcelain cap for a fruit jar, and a
stoneware lid for a pot. (Picture is on next page, top- not all items are
shown). I left to go to spot #3, but was dismayed when I was not bale to find
anything intact. Spot #1 also gave me the same luck today.
                                                   I decided to go up Artondale
                                                   Creek a little bit, which really
                                                   was pretty fun. It’s nice and
                                                   quiet up there, and hopefully
                                                   I’ll find a dump along the
                                                   creek that I can get permission
                                                   to. After two hours, I ate
                                                   lunch on a tree overlooking
                                                   the bay, and then rode home
                                                   to clean my finds.
                                                   *Post Dig Note- On March
                                                   13, I met up with Mr.
Murphy, and he gave me the knowledge of a shack in the area where I’m
digging that used to sell oysters, etc. Next time I’ll be going to the spot to
search for any sign of history. Perhaps another bottle dump is in the midst?
                                     March 14
Sure enough, Mr. Murphy came through again! I rode down to the beach at 1
pm, and the tide was fairly high. Setting my bike down at the site closest to
the grange, I walked past my other sites to the spot that Mr. Murphy had
pointed out the day before. I was looking for a shack or any sign of an old
oyster store, and soon I saw the signs. I first came across a HUGE pile of
oyster shells next to the beach, many of which had fallen off of the pile and
                                                 were scattered along the beach.
                                                 I have never seen so many
                                                 shells in my life (See pic, left).
                                                 Next to the pile of shells was
                                                 the wooden foundation of the
                                                 shack that sat at the top of the
                                                 beach. The foundation is still
                                                 laid out as if the building was
                                                 there yesterday, except the rest
                                                 of the shack is gone (or is
                                                 covered in the ivy that is strewn
                                                 throughout the area). So, now
that I had located the site of the store, I was in need of finding the dumpsite.
I walked back into the woods to get a better look (Actually, it was more like
crawling because of those stupid bushes with stickers on them). Something
white caught my eye, and I crawled over to it. Turns out it was the top
corner of a huge metal ice bin or something. Looking around the area that I
was in, I could make out several bottles and jars sticking out of the ground,
along with plenty of other items, such as shoes, cans, lids, etc. One by one I
pulled the items out. The age for the bottles that I got today is not
overwhelmingly old, at around late 30’s to late 40’s. However, there are tons
of bottles just below the surface, and in a generally large area as well.
Referring to the map on page 3, this spot is #5. In a spot with the age like
this, I’ll be looking for and keeping milk bottles, beverage bottles, fruit jars,
and bottles with elaborate embossing. I actually located about 15 bottles in
20 minutes, but could only keep those that I could fit in my backpack. I got a
large green bottle off of the beach with ABCo on base (Made from 1915-
1930.) Also off of the beach I found an awesome jar reading Chas. M.
Higgins & Co. Rochester, NY. Turns out the jar was made around 1900, and
is an ink or paste jar. These two bottles were found in front of the oyster
store rather than behind it, so whether they actually came from the store is
unknown. The rest of the bottles that I got today were all found in the dump
behind the shack, and age around 1940. These bottle include the tall milk
bottle (Far left), a Pommerelle Wine Bottle- this wine was bottles from
1934-1950 in Washington State (Second From Left), an Atlas Strong
Shoulder Mason (Fourth from Left), two Certo jars of varying sizes (2’nd
and 3’rd from right, and a wine flask with embossed leaves and grapes (far
right). During digging a couple walked by and we discussed digging and
how I do it. They seemed overly impressed and couldn’t believe something
of this age would still be down there. They seemed to get into it as well, as
they were studying glass pieces and looking for bottles along the beach as I
was digging. I cut my finger on a shard of glass at 3 pm and decided to head
for home since I didn’t have any first aid with me. I had to leave a gallon
size ball Perfect mason and two gallon wine jugs at the beach because I
could not fit them in my backpack. It’d weird to me that there are so many of
those wine bottles with the embossed leaves and grape sin this area.
Apparently someone was a drinker!

I rode down to Wollochet Bay after school, and slowly made my way along
the beach due to the extremely high tide. Eventually I made it to the Oyster
                                               dump, and began clearing out
                                               brush and locating the perimeter
                                               of the dump. About 75% of the
                                               dump is shown in this picture,
                                               with the rest underneath and
                                               behind the picture. After
                                               clearing out the majority of
                                               brush, I began to dig a hole right
                                               in the center of the dump (Near
                                               the gardening pad in the
                                               picture). Now I’ve dug quite a
                                               few dumps, but I haven’t seen a
                                               dumpsite produce like this since
                                               my first Olson Dig. In the 2 X 2
foot hole I dug, I retrieved 8 keepers, numerous chuckers (Too common to
keep), a marble, and a button. In addition, it’s an extremely easy dig because
the depth is 1 foot at most, and the soil is very dark, yet not mud (Thank
goodness). The weird thing is that from what I’ve dug and observed, the
bottles are primarily food or beverage. Very few medicines, no inks, no
cosmetic (which is extremely unusual), and no whiskey/beer bottles. I look
forward to seeing what comes out in the future, because I’ll be able to get a
better perspective of the original people’s lives. In this dump, I’ve been able
to specify that there is a woman (red heeled leather shoe), a man (boots/ the
oyster seller), and a child (marble). I have an excellent feeling about what is
to be coming out of this hole in the future. As for today, I pulled out nine
bottles. Two are large one-quart milk bottles with case wear. One of the
bottles is shown being dug out in the picture at bottom right. I also found a
Hormel Good Food jar, part of which is just being uncovered in the picture.
Other finds include an Alka- seltzer
jar, a small clear jar, a brown
medicine, and the large Ball Perfect
Mason jar. Overall, it was a great
dig, and I can’t wait until next time.


              March 20
       Went digging at 9 am with
my friend Clint Perry. We decided
to dig behind the oyster shop
because we are basically guaranteed to find bottles, and he doesn’t care if
they’re old or new. Therefore, we dug for 2 hours straight in the dirt. The
area kept producing bottle after bottles, and he was having just as much luck
as I was (which is great, because otherwise I fell bad if only I can find the
bottles”. The bottles dated to mid 40’s, so I was looking to keep only milks,
sodas, and embossed bottles, while Clint wanted to keep anything else. In
the end we pulled out 20 items, 10 for each of us. I took home a cup, 1
Abbott labs bottle, 1 bottle embossed Ace with an Ace of Spaces on the
front, a few odd shaped containers, a glass furniture leg protector, 1 Ball
Perfect Mason jar, a cobalt Vicks Vaporub bottle, and a cool tin Velvet Pipe
and Cigarette box, not rust much because it was under a log in the ground. I
think Clint took home a gallon size wine jug, a gallon size bleach jug, and
various other bottles. We had a real heartbreaker this time- a great Mission
Soda bottle with an applied color label (painted on). These are collectable,
but unfortunately the crown top was broken off! I’ll be digging next time to
find a whole one, because they were normally bought in a pack and not
individually. It was fun to bring someone along this time- certainly makes
digging go much faster.

                                     April 2

Today was a very productive day! I arrived at 3 pm after school, and made
my way to the site through the forest because of high tide. I decided to work
at spot #5, behind the oyster shack. I dug into an area not previously hit,
where I wasn’t sure what kind of results I would make. Almost immediately
I pulled out a beautiful bottle, which has the prohibition stamp on it (Federal
Law Prohibits Sale or Reuse of this bottle). It has pretty embossing all over
it, and on both sides reads “ARROW-DETROIT.” No information was
provided afterwards on the Internet. I continued to dig about 6 inches over to
a small freezer that had been thrown into the ground. After digging out the
                  freezer, I was surprised to see many bottles beneath it. First
                  to come out was a one-quart milk bottle, like the two I’d
                  gotten previously. It has a pink tinge to it. Right next to the
                  milk bottle was a medicine bottle with all contents still inside
                  (Yuck!). I continued to dig forward with my garden rake. At
                  the sound of a screech, I stopped and felt with my hand a
                  smooth surface. It was the bottom of a large brown bottle. At
                  the time I was almost certain that it was another common
                  Purex or Clorox Bleach Bottle. That was until I saw the ACL
                  label on the front of it (ACL= Applied Color Label). When I
                  pulled the qt. Sized bottle out, I was presented with this. It’s
                  a Dad’s Old Fashioned Root Beer bottle. There’s a picture of
a woman, and it says “Mama Size.” The back is also painted on, and it
basically lists the sizes and that it was bottled in Tacoma, Washington. I was
very excited when I saw this, as well as the next thing to come out. After
pulling the Root Beer bottle out, I saw part of a jar. It looked like a regular
Ball jar, but on further inspection it read “Ball Refrigerator and Freezer Jar.”
It’s pint size, and is listed in my bottle book for $10.00! Just beneath this
was a Kerr Self Sealing Mason Jar. And beyond that was a drinking glass
with a cool decoration on the bottom. When 5 pm rolled around I left, but
not before packing up all of the great finds of the day.




                                 April 7, 8, 14

The Wollochet Bay dig slowly was coming to a close. On April 7 and 8, I
spent my time behind the oyster shop (Which I now know was owned by the
Maloney Family). Since most of the dump has been dug, I decided to cut the
brush to find bottles in outlying areas. This proved rather successful, as I
                                   was able to probe and locate a group of
                                   remaining bottles that were in odd areas. I
                                   found numerous milk bottles, including one
                                   with an ACL label, which reads
                                   “Middletown Milk- Creami-Rich.” The
                                   back reads “Middletown Milk and Cream
                                   Co.” Turns out that this bottle is from a
                                   small company in New York- its reason for
                                   being out here is undetermined. I also found
                                   a soda bottle from Cammarano Bros. Of
                                   Tacoma, another Ball Refrigerator and
                                   Freezer jar, and two glass ball and claw
                                   furniture bottoms. Overall, the site really
                                   produced in its last day. On April 14, I went
                                   through all of the areas looking for any
                                   bottles. Each site turned up nothing, with
the exception of the Oyster Shop site. I did manage to find a button made by
the Scovill Mfg Co. of Waterbury. Turns out that this company made
buttons for military groups. My button has an eagle holding an anchor,
which is used for the Marines and Navy. These buttons are very collectable-
I’ve seen a price range from $25-400. I also located part of a Tacoma News
Tribune Metal box. It’s rather rusted, except for the part that says News
Tribune. I took it home in the hopes of cleaning up and cutting out this
particular part of the box. I also located an insulator while walking around in
the woods. However, nothing else was to be found. This site really gave me
plenty of finds, and well as a good time. I’m looking forward to my next dig.
