"Beach combing for five months along the Chukchi coast near Kotzebue, Alaska, had wonderful natural experiences, life changing and challenging. During this 'storm' I was stranded along the coast for three days due to winds and some rain. I was surprised to discover that the storm brought artifacts and ivory from the ocean, deposited them on the beaches and reclaimed them again. It was so all day and night as the waves brought bones, shells, mammoth ivory, artifacts, and small stones back and forth to the beach sands." "I spent the entire time walking the beaches discovering." "Even though I was stranded I was well entertained!"
