It’s officially wet season on Vancouver Island and I managed to get a couple good trips in to my favourite rockhounding locations.
Month: October 2014
North Island Flowerstone hunting
I work at an auto shop part time. My favourite part of the job is delivering cars and auto parts to far-away locations. This time I got to deliver an auto part to north Vancouver Island, past Comox, which was a great excuse to rockhound in a new spot.
Desire to landscape with rocks, rockhound trip to Squamish river/spit
I took a trip to the spit area in Squamish, where high tide still affects the mouth of the river area. There’s a gravel bar that’s easy to access and I love all the beautiful quartz that washes up. I picked up a few big pieces, I just need places to put them!
