November beachcombing finds...

Lucky Spike, a local beachcomber was just in with these beauties he has found over the last week or so.  The fossilized crab claw (rarely ever found) is really quite impressive.   The agates are very nice sized  sard (brownish one), blue-black, and the bottom one is a cloud agate.

Considering that the beaches are not gravely yet, this just goes to show you, that you too can find some goodies during our "Discovery season" which is the value season here on the Oregon coast.

Yes the beachcomber's are finding agates!

Congratulations to local beachcomber Barbara, who found a rare 3" Pigeon blood RED agate this morning south of Newport.  This beauty was not a red-orange carnelian. 

Yes our Discovery Season is beginning to produce some agates.  No I can't tell you which beach to find them on but yes they are beginning to be found.   This weekend it is predicted to have some minus tides so the afternoons should produce an extended shoreline for our beachcombers.  Please be careful to hunt with a partner to watch your back and don't jeopardize your life with those sneaker waves.

UPDATED NOTE: Our camera battery just died so she brought it back to us polished in December.
