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.

As Meags said, bluebottles, yes! Jellyfish, too - like someone dumped out lots of little tubs of clear Jell-O randomly at the high-tide mark.

Seaweed (the thick and wavy, coarse-surfaced kind and the ones with the 'bulbs' all along it), rocks all washed clean. Also the ones that look like really long, dark-green grass. And seashells - the little fan-shaped ones in brown and cream, the small black ones from the sea snails that cling to the rocks at high tide, and I remember finding purple coral-like ones at certain beaches - although I haven't seen them in years. Cuttlefish bones (good for taking back for the budgie cage) and shell-sand mixed in among the grit-sand at the rocks.

A lot of it depends on the kind of beach and the weather, too.
