I'm writing about people on an ocean beach. And yet it's been years since I've been on an ocean beach. (There's lots of water around here, but the stuff nearest to me is freshwater). So, until I get a chance to go myself, I have to rely on others:

What are some things you might find washed up on the beach? Not counting trash :\ I'm thinking shells, starfish, sea glass -- what about sand dollars? Kelp? Driftwood? If it matters, this particular beach is in a temperate area.

Dunno if this helps, but along the Oregon Coast they have local artists make glass floats as art objects and leave them on the beaches for people to find during the tourist season. (The floats are modeled after ones fishermen used to use to float their nets with, which would occasionally get loose from the nets and wash up on shore. The ones the artists do are generally far more colorful than the ones the fishermen used--actually, I dunno, they may still be using them, though I doubt it.)
