It is no secret that I am a huge rock hound. If I am at the ocean or a rocky mountain river beach I can not help myself from searching for a little treasure.My very patient husband has sat in the car reading a book with a napping baby at the coast, in the pouring rain, many times...while I completely lost myself in treasure hunting trance. One time about a year ago at the ocean, the tsunami sirens went off while I was on an isolated beach...alone...I only panicked for a moment before remembering that it was the monthly testing day.
I started really getting into rock hunting when Solomon was a newborn. It became a great meditative stress reducing activity, much like knitting is to me.
Anyway, this was the best kind of treasure, found at unexpected times when rock hunting isn't in my plan. We planned just to hike for a bit(nowhere near water), and get some outside foggy morning time, when I found these two lovely treasures. I know the little red one is an agate, but not sure yet about the other. If you know, please do tell. Hiking may never be the same for me now.
