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.
There was lots of amygdaloidal basalt in this location. Good Dallasite was rare and I picked up only a few pieces. The beach was mostly porphyry rocks of some sort. I found some big boulders of Flowerstone toward the end and actually had to leave a few behind!
It was a rainy, stormy day on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I love this kind of weather. More rain, the better. I’ve never been too big on rainbows because it means the rain is over.
Thanks for looking. Stay warm and dry!
