Dad’s Favorite Rock
Shafts of light make for the best rock studies. Like having God hold the flashlight for you. It is also the best time to look for agates. Sunrise/Sunset at Lowtide. With your back to the sun, walk back and forth and focus on what sparkles. What has a glint or a shine. Many, even locals, never find agates. I used to NEVER find them. Now, with an eye out, we each collect a pocket full with each trip.
We have been experiencing long blue sky days. The large swells have been coming in pounding the beach all night long. A huge storm system from Japan and Alaska hit shore on Friday night. Huge pounding surf. It’s ripping the sand out – so if you are looking for a place to look for an assortment of Rocks – the Pacific Northwest Coast rock beds are ready for you! Heading out for today’s low tide of .8 at 3:30 – so we’ll be out around 2. See ya there!
