Trophies found on Oregon's Central Coast

Treasures found by 4 beachcombers
After many seasonal storms last Saturday we noticed the beaches were scrubbed down to the bed rock leaving gravel showing from Newport to  Taft in Lincoln City.  These are just a few of the beauties that have been found here in the area.  I will put more up as time permits.  #1. Fortification Agate found by Steve of Lincoln County, 2. Fancy Jasper found by beachcomber Terry of Gleneden Beach. #3 is a fancy jasp-agate weighing over 2 pounds  and #4. is a possible blue agate weighing ¾ pound found by our Oregon Fossil Guy last week. #5. are two views of a  massive grouping of Crepidula, fornicata.
