Had a weird sleep schedule this weekend and couldn’t help myself but get up at the crack of dawn today to pick up some tumbling material at a local beach.
A lot of these rocks are Dallasite but there are other jaspers and pretty stones in there as well.
Vancouver Island beaches are a rockhounder’s dream.
I found all of these stones within about a 50-foot span of beach, and the beaches here tend to stretch on forever.
It’s amazing to me how few people realize what nice rocks are under their feet here.
Until next time. It’s a heat wave here in British Columbia. I’ll be on the beach.
Have you been to Sunray beach in Parksville? On the inland hwy turn right at Pym then right Doehle at at the very end of Doehle there is parking and a set of stairs you go down to the beach. I was amazed at all the beautiful and unusual rocks on that beach. Worth a visit for sure. 🙂
