Wow what a week on Oregon's Central Coast!

Summer is definitely on it's way the weather has been beautiful. Sunny with a cool breeze for flying kites, great minus tides for the beachcombing of coastal treasures and tide pooling, what more could we ask for? In twenty plus years we have never seen this kind of a response for a Memorial Day Weekend. It is really impressive, looks more like the beaches of southern California with people frolicking on the coastline of Oregon. Some people were surfing while others were wading along the surf line some even swimming, seems a little cool for a dip in the ocean to us.

Be careful on those roads out there and we hope you ALL have a safe Memorial Day!

Geology's Rock stars still being found on the Oregon Coast!

Rock Star found on the Oregon Coast weighing in at over 5 pounds

Nice find! This was just brought in by local agate collector Jeff, This Oregon agate geode showing nice quartz crystals weighed in at 5.4 pounds. Not bad considering that it was pretty much all buried in the sand. This just goes to prove, Agates can still be found on the Oregon coast even when you least expect it even if the beaches appear sanded in.
