Today I rock hounded at a stretch of beach just off the highway between Nanaimo and Parksville on Vancouver Island.
I was out looking for Dallasite and Flowerstone, as usual. This beach is across the bay from my favourite beach, but it’s not quite as stocked with nice rocks. I didn’t find much Flowerstone, got a few pieces of Dallasite and then a bunch of bits for the tumblers.
The tide was coming in so I picked up and left without my bucket being too full this time. It was getting a bit too hot on my body.
I can’t wait to fill my tumblers up with more Dallasite. I love that we have a local jasper!
Everyone in Vancouver Island should get down to the beach this summer and grab a piece. They can look beautiful just ocean-tumbled.
Until next time.
