When we were little, my brother’s favorite hobby was rock collecting. We’d probably been to every mine and rock shop in the tri-state area. Yes, he even had a blacklight and rock tumbler and obsessively labeled his specimens. His hobby became my fascination and I started a modest collection of my own. My present collection is a little (okay… a lot) bigger and has grown to include rocks I’ve found on my travels through California and Oregon.
I could spend all day hunting for stones on the beach. That might be the reason why I love the Oregon coast so much. There is a nonsensical amount of beautiful stones. The picture above shows some of my favorite finds from my road trip in June 2016.
