Bradstreet's Landing - The Dainty Squid

Bradstreet's Landing

I know I'm always blogging about beach trash, and what I find is no exaggeration but I would really hate for anyone to think that's what all of Cleveland's beaches look like. My favorite trash beach is a mess. I have no idea what it is about that spot. It must just be the location, that's where the tide brings in the most garbage. That little spot aside, we have some really nice beaches!

One of the very first spots I fell in love with here was Bradstreet's Landing. Mickey and I actually discovered it shortly before I moved to Lakewood. It is my absolute favorite spot to look for beach glass. Although it's not a secret spot by any means for the longest time I refused to name it because I wanted it all to myself. When I was living in Lakewood I was there at least twice a week. Sometimes Jeff and I would even grab donuts, coffee, and chocolate milk and spend the morning there. I haven't been picking up beach glass as often lately and had kind of forgotten just how much I love this little beach. I've been meaning to share more about the things I love in Cleveland and although this one is a tiny bit outside the city (around twenty minutes) it definitely deserves to be named!

Coming from Geneva beaches I was used to finding maybe three or four pieces of beach glass per trip. Bradstreet's Landing blew my mind. You can sit down in one spot, run your hand over the small pebbles, and expose five to ten glistening pieces of glass. There's barely any trash, it's rare that more than a handful of people are there, and there's almost always a big log to sit down and relax on.


Bradstreet's Landing should probably be on your itinerary if you're in the area and like looking for beach glass! Make sure to say hi if you see me and my obnoxiously bright hair hunkered down looking for treasure!

  1. Wow that's so pretty!!! I love beaches, but I never found beach glass (maybe there isn't any in Portugal?). I must say I also love your sandals =)

    1. Hmm, I mean, I would presume there is beach glass at basically any beach in the world but some definitely have more than others so maybe it's just not at the ones you frequent?

  2. Beautiful photos! There is a park near where I live that has a beach with a huge lake. I really need to get to it and take some photos!

    2. Yep! I've never looked for glass there though, usually only Huntington. I need to expand my local beach rotation!

  4. So wish I lived close to the ocean like I did as a child. Breathing in that sea air is such a blessing <3

    1. It really is. I don't think I could live somewhere far from water ever again. I just love it so much.

  5. It's like the evolution of your beach littler collages: this is what happens to the trash that has been tumbled around in the ocean long enough to lose its shape & texture! That big aquamarine piece is a really great find. :)
